Watch Behind the Mac: Skywalker Sound, a new documentary short film from Apple, that shines a light on the legendary studio that turned sound design into an art form, creating sounds for the Star Wars saga and near-countless other films for over 40 years.

Behind the Mac: Skywalker Sound, a new documentary short film from Apple (co-produced by Imagine Entertainment and Delirio Films), shines a light on the legendary studio that turned sound design into an art form, creating sounds for the Star Wars saga and near-countless other films for over 40 years. Behind the Mac: Skywalker Sound takes viewers inside Skywalker Sound at Skywalker Ranch in Nicasio, California, featuring sound designers, foley artists, and mixers as they discuss their techniques and reveal how many iconic film and TV sounds came to be.

“My intent for the film was to take viewers inside Skywalker Sound and go on a deep dive into the genius behind the ever-expanding Star Wars universe, showcasing the art and craft of sound design at an intimate level,” director Josh Greenbaum tells StarWars.com. “Apple was the perfect partner to make this film with. I can’t think of another brand that has been so supportive of and integral to the world of sound design, filmmaking, and the creative arts as whole.”

“The passion and excitement that the brilliant artists at Skywalker Ranch have for their jobs is infectious,” adds Todd Banhazl, director of photography. “All of us on the crew were reminded of the wonder of filmmaking and the spark we all felt when we first dreamt of working in this industry.”

And coming on May 9, Apple will host a virtual Today at Apple session, in which Leff Lefferts from Skywalker Sound and Apple Creative Pros teach viewers how to create their own sound effects using Garage Band.
