The Power of Sound

It is said that sound is half the experience in films but we would even argue that sound is even more important than your visuals. Good sound can save bad visuals, but not the other way around. Sound is a really powerful tool for storytelling and making an impact on your audience. it sets the scene, evokes emotions, and lets your audience know how they should be feeling.

Unfortunately, it is not always possible to capture high-quality sound for your projects. Below are 7 scenarios when this might be the case and why you want to use sound effects.

  • You don’t have an external microphone and the quality of your in-camera microphone is not satisfactory
  • You are out shooting and it’s windy
  • The sound you are trying to capture is too far away from your microphone
  • The sound you are trying to capture is coming from behind
  • You are shooting in slow motion and your camera doesn’t record audio
  • You are shooting with a drone
  • You forget to turn your microphone on (happens to the best of us)
