Star Wars The Force Awakens Sound Effects

When the original Star Wars arrived in theaters in 1977, it was an innovative piece of filmmaking for a number of reasons. Even though the film didn’t take home any of the big awards for Best Picture, Best Screenplay or Best Director, it did take a bunch of technical awards home for costume design, art direction, visual effects, editing, score and sound.

It’s the latter arean that a new video focuses on by isolating dozens of sound effects from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Obviously the movie borrows plenty of familiar sounds that originated in the first Star Wars nearly 40 years ago, but there are plenty of new ones to appreciate as well. And just like the original Star Wars, they were created by sound master Ben Burtt, who was given a special honorary Oscar for his work on the movie back in 1977.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Everything is a Remix Video Essay

In 2010, Kirby Ferguson created a video essay called Everything is a Remix, about how it’s not just Quentin Tarantino, but every single artist (authors, musicians or filmmakers) who borrows something old to make something new. The video essay spawned a series of essays, which was later combined into an almost 40 minute long documentary (which you can watch here).

Ferguson has returned once again with a new Everything is a Remix video essay, this time focusing not just on Star Wars: The Force Awakens but also the overall storytelling career of JJ Abrams. The video isn’t just a visualization of all the complaints we’ve heard about Force Awakens being a rehash of A New Hope (we’ve already seen that before), but a serious look into the screenwriter, director and producer’s filmography, as well as an examination of how Abrams copies, transforms and combines his stories to create his art. But it also asks: is the remix method growing stale and have we hit the limits of remixing?

Agents of SHIELD Marvel Movies Crossover

Even though the television series Agents of SHIELD takes place in the Marvel cinematic universe, there has still be a significant disconnect between the Marvel Studios show on ABC and their feature films. The biggest piece of evidence pointing to a lack of cooperation between the two Marvel entities is the fact that Agents of SHIELD probably won’t cross over with the Inhumans movie (which has been pulled from Marvel’s schedule, but will still get made eventually), even though they share an entire species of superpowered characters from Marvel Comics. And it sounds like one of Marvel’s TV stars is a bit annoyed by that.
