Riding a Space Shuttle Booster with enhanced sound


From the upcoming Special Edition Ascent: Commemorating Space Shuttle DVD/BluRay a movie from the point of view of the Solid Rocket Booster with sound mixing and enhancement done by the folks at Skywalker Sound.

Why this video is great: shot in real time, a good look at the shuttle’s heat-absorbing ceramic tiles, the super-unique and riveting perspective of the booster, and the sounds! (I just wish I knew how “enhanced” the sound was from the original… it is such a powerful component of the storytelling.)
