We all love video game music in one way or another. Often we do not even realize exactly why, that it takes the work of a talented sound engineer to put together the sounds and music in just the right way to give the story true impact and emotion.

John Rodd is one of those engineers and one of the best in the business. His credits include work on Breaking Bad, Call of Duty, World of Warcraft and recently, Star Wars Battlefront along with many more.

John takes us through his history from sneaking into see Star Wars at age 11 to working with huge names in the entertainment industry. He also told us about his craft and what it takes to bring emotion to a story be it in television, video games or film.
