Lightsaber Sound Design

To kick off a new class of interns (and score some cool new sound elements for our library), I asked Boom Box Post intern James Singleton to create a selection of lightsaber/laser sword sound effects.  The original Star Wars trilogy is chalk full of classic sound effects that continue to inspire our field today, and recreating old favorites is a great way to flex sound design muscles and explore unconventional techniques.  I requested James work primarily from recordings and sounds created specifically for this project, and take inspiration from Ben Burtt's original methods.  To wrap up the project I asked him to tell me a little about his process for creating the final sound effects.
