Sounding Off

In another Lucasfilm related article Ben Burtt, the 30 year veteran sound editor for the company, has decided to leave for greener pastures over at Pixar Animation. The article doesn't clearly state why he left, but Burtt admitted that "the last few years have been frustrating, so I was at a point of change."

Whatever that means.

Maybe he had to endure one too many 'super-takes' while editing with George.

Anyway, I guess the question remains whether Burtt will be back to do Indy 4 (who's working title I just learned may be Indiana Jones and the Opal of the Mer-Man Prince) and he can only achieve greater heights at a place like Pixar. Those guys can do no wrong (a notion that will be put to the test this summer with the release of Cars).
