I decided to post this video because I find sound design a very interesting subject and I know many people often do not realise how much time goes into creating a convincing soundtrack for a film (or video game in this example).
At the corporate video end of the business Media Music Now creates video / animation soundtracks for video producers using sound effects, royalty free music and voice overs, but this work is on a much shorter time frame and budget than a big screen film score or game soundtrack. Typically, we are paid to spend multiple hours to produce and mix a final soundtrack.
In the Star Wars game soundtrack shown in this YouTube video, the producers have the luxury of using a team of people who put in a vast amount of work over a long period of time. A production on this scale includes custom soundtracks, custom made sound effects, sound design and Foley spread over multiple tracks, all mixed, edited and produced in expensive sound studios.
Personally, this type of video fascinates me and I think this film really demonstrates how much we take for granted with sound. There is huge amount of work that goes into movie / game soundtracks and when you see the shots in the video without the various sound layers you can really appreciate how even the subtle sounds significantly add to the feel and effect.
