Talk: Star Wars: The Ultimate Vinyl Collection Q&A and Unboxing

Tom Laskey

Tom Laskey has worked at Sony Masterworks for 25 years and is Director of Product Development and Custom Sales where he oversees US catalog product re-issues and digital metadata.

He has recorded and mixed over 350 feature films during a thirty year career in film including Braveheart, Apollo 13, Saving Private Ryan, and Jurassic Park for which he won an Academy Award for his work.

Dann Michael Thompson

Dann Michael Thompson joined Skywalker Sound in 1999, after three years as a staff-recording engineer at Capitol Studios in Hollywood. He was on staff at Group IV Studios starting his career there back in 1987 after studying recording at LA Valley College and at UCLA.

Patricia Sullivan

Patricia Sullivan is the original mastering engineer for Episodes I-III where she restored the stereo files for the CDs of the 3 films and remastered the Episode I CD. Throughout her career, she has worked on a diverse range of musical genres, with a primary focus in movie soundtracks.
