Episode 360 – Catching Up with David W. Collins and the Sound of Star Wars

This week we are thrilled to welcome back to Blast Points, Skywalker Sound’s David W. Collins!  Since we last talked a couple of years ago, David was nominated for an Emmy for his sound work on The Book of Boba Fett, led the way with Tales of the Jedi and The Bad Batch season 2 and was the sound designer for that little thing called The Mandalorian season 3.  Join us as we go over all of that and more as we explore what went into creating sounds for so much of the recent stuff we’ve loved.  What’s the secret sound in Gorian Shard’s voice, what was the inspiration for Gideon’s mech suit and where can you hear the sound of Jon Favreau’s dog?  

So, listen today & celebrate the love!
