12 Videos Featuring Walter Murch and The Sound Design of 'THX 1138'

You can’t  miss this! I just found 12 videos on YouTube featuring Walter Murch and the Sound Design of THX 1138, a classic sci-fi film directed by George Lucas. Maybe you already watched the first video, when Walter talks about the Worldizing technique, but pay attention to the other 11 videos.. really interesting stuff! If you want more get the 2 Disc Collector’s Edition of the film.
