HOW THE HECK DID I MISS THIS!?!? - Academy of Motion Pictures Edition

Damn it!
I'm seriously pissed. The Academy does an examination of sound effects throughout film history, highlighting films that have had serious impact on the way we watch (listen to) movies, AND I FIND OUT JUST IN TIME FOR TOTAL RECALL!?!?!

So if you're uber slow like me then you've already missed 'The French Connection' and 'Jaws'. BOO! I know! It DOES suck!

Anywho, I'm hoping to salvage this a bit by catching this:

"The “Sound, Camera, Action!” series will culminate on May 17 with “The Sound behind the Image,” a program, hosted by Oscar-winning sound designer Ben Burtt and 19-time Academy Award-nominated sound mixer and Academy governor Kevin O’Connell.

“The Sound behind the Image” will explore the extraordinary impact of sound in the history of the action-adventure genre and pay tribute to the sound design of the 1977 Oscar-winning classic “Star Wars.” A panel discussion with key members of the “Star Wars” sound crew will be moderated by O’Connell."

For $5, how can you go wrong?

Check it out, maybe you'll see me there.

Dont laugh.

I've been working out...


  1. I'll be there, Dude. You'll hear me cheer when the Wilhelm Scream is heard.

  2. LOL!
    I KNOW!
    It's ridiculoushow stoked I am for this...
