Talk:Ben Burtt

"Due to Burtt's influence, John Williams' musical score was often put in the background to the movie's sound effects as opposed to the original trilogy."

This sentence makes zero sense to me. Is there a way of making this idea more clear? Does anyone know what this is supposed to mean?Chinagreenelvis (talk) 17:36, 15 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

The sentence didn't make sense to me either. I went ahead and removed it. Jmartinsson (talk) 21:41, 1 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I think I've rescued this article from the awful mess it was before. Different sources give different details about his Oscar nominations and awards though (I've even found individual sources that self-contradict!), so I hope what I have come up with is definitive. Incidentally, Jamestown, New York definitely could do with expanding as well! It appears, funnily enough, on the Jamestown disambig page, but there's not even a substub on the page itself. Once somebody puts something there, it would be worth mentioning this guy as a famous person born in Jamestown, NY, but for now that would just constitute an especially useless substub. --VivaEmilyDavies 00:24, 3 Mar 2005 (UTC)

who came up with the term "sound designer"[edit]

I think you'll find "sound designer" comes from Walter Murch, and not Ben Burtt... as documented elsewhere in wikipedia:

I've heard 2 competing stories:

It was back before Murch was in the union... so he couldn't get a regular sound editor credit, so he and Coppola used the term "sound designer".

.. or, Coppola thought Murch deserved a better credit.

take your pick.


Did he not also write some of the star wars cartoon of the mid 8-s Droids or was that a different Ben Burtt?

I added his work on Star Wars: Droids to the article. Jmartinsson (talk) 21:41, 1 February 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Article picture[edit]

Perhaps the pic could be cropped to only include Burtt as opposed to the whole group? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Aksnitd (talkcontribs) 10:01, 8 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
