Walter Murch

I don't do much of the usual blogging thing of linking to other blog posts, but thanks to Max at Not Really A Diary, I found this interview with Walter Murch. Murch's accomplishments are just too long to note (read about them here) but the interview is full of the kind of anecdotes that keep this old stripper happy. The links that Murch has discovered between Copernicus and the Pantheon I found fascinating but it's the stuff about the place of sound in films that, for me, makes it well worth the click.

And in case you worry: you needn't count this as part of the two days of pointless surfing we British are meant to do each month. Nor is it that self-important political blogging for a minority. This is valuable life enhancing stuff which comes with the Chipster's full money back guarantee.

I love the smell of sound editing anecdotes in the morning...

Hi Chip, I'm glad you enjoyed it as much as I did. It truly deserves publicity.
