At first sight, the Technical Studios building at Skywalker Ranch gives no hint to what goes on inside of its walls. To a mere passer by, it would be written off as a vineyard house or a fancy barn. It is not until one begins to explore the twisting maze of hallways that the inner workings of the building begin to reveal themselves. Along the walls hundreds of movie posters hang from countless films forgotten in the nooks and crannies of time. Many more, all hand-selected by George Lucas himself, hang in places that make a statement to the artwork alone.
Al Nelson works on the sound editing for movies produced on the ranch. He has been working in sound for 15 years on films such as Up, Toy Story 3, Ratatouille, Wall-E, and How to Train Your Dragon. Al wanted to start out our visit "with a bang," and thus lead us down a short flight of stairs into the state of the art Stag Theatre.
