A new 14-minute feature released by Soundworks gives an impressive look into the incredible sound design of this year's blockbuster Blade Runner 2049.

The piece features interviews and commentary from the film's director Denis Villeneuve, sound supervisor Mark Mangini, sound designer Theo Green and more.

Composers Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch give an inside look of their work on Blade Runner 2049, explaining their homage to the original film's score using only the same tech as Vangelis did in the first movie and showing a demo of the iconic CS-80 synthesizer.

With sound design playing such a vital part in the motion picture, sound supervisor Mark Magini goes through his process of creating over 2500 custom audio elements using an array of organic and man-made objects.

The feature also shows exclusive studio footage of Vangelis.
