Skywalker Sound, 1987

Here's another blast from the past. My last year at Lucasfilm was the company's 10 year anniversary (1977-1987) and there were a range of festivities, some of which i crashed... anyway, Skywalker Sound (which back then was "Sprocket Systems") made an anniversary/demo reel which i just saw online and decided to re-post here for your enjoyment. (Personally, i would have preferred it without the orchestral theme, and let the sound work speak for itself... but whatever.) If you like this sort of thing it's a worthy 6 minutes. As I have said before here, my book DROIDMAKER (Act I, in particular) will provide a great deal of context for the moments you see illustrated here, and the people in the shots.
