    Abstract

    This dissertation aims to explore the interesting aspects and concepts of sound design in one of the industries most recognisable names: Ben Burtt. The two works in topic are at opposite ends of an illustrious career (which has not yet ended) that has made his name one of the most recognisable names in the film industry. Those two films are Star Wars IV: A New Hope (Lucas, 1977) and Wall-E (Stanton, 2008). Through extensive research into modern day sound design theories and concepts, many roles and functions have been determined to take forward into the analysis. The analysis itself will cohere with these roles and functions, consequently determining the key outstanding aspects of the work.
