Brooklyn, NY -�Pro Sound Effects�has partnered with audio post veterans Mark Mangini & Richard L. Anderson to release exclusive sound libraries from their private recording collection, available soon as the�Mangini-Anderson Sound Library.

During an interview with PSE about his recording process and approach to sound for film, Mark Mangini shared a funny (and amazing!) story about recording fire sounds with partner�Richard L. Anderson�for an iconic scene from Spielberg's classic 1981 film�Raiders of the Lost Ark.

In the film, during a shootout between Indiana Jones and the Nazi commander's henchmen, fire starts spreading throughout the bar and catches a trail of spilled whiskey. And like true sound recordists, Mangini and Anderson were not willing to settle in their portrayal of the igniting trail of flames - so out came the sterno and benzene. Find out who is "the incredible burning man" in this short clip:

The soon-to-be-released�Mangini-Anderson library�offers 100,000 world-class sound effects�encompassing more than 30 years of feature film sound for royalty-free use in your projects.�

Watch the�Nepal Shootout bar fight scene from�Raiders of the Lost Ark�here, and stay tuned for more stories from behind the sounds of Mark and Richard!
