I've always loved the sound of the lightsabers in Star Wars. They just sound exactly like what you'd imagine a shimmering beam of energy would be like. Yet I never really thought about what it must have been like to try to come up with a sound for something unlike anything anyone had heard before. That's why I found this video interview with Ben Burtt fascinating, where he explains how he came up with the lightsaber sound, and how he achieved it.
What did you think of the video?
