Narrative Sound Design
The better the sound the better the shot. Most would agree that the soundtrack of a film equals about half of the viewing experience. The action and scenes will become flat without good sound design to help evoke a wide range of changing emotions. Great sound design can sometimes save a bad shot. Bad sound design can kill the best visual shot in the world.

"The evolution of film has led to a new fusion of the audio and the visual. It's a kind of poetry that abounds in aural metaphors."
– Walter Murch
