The sound designer will create a rich, multi-layered audio experience around the image and engage the audience on a completely different level.
The goal of location sound is to get all signal and no noise. We need to add ambience in place of the noise to make the space sound natural, but natural in a way that we can control.
Sound effects can come from many sources, many of which may not exist in nature. A talented Sound Designer will use their imagination to create or find sounds with a wide range of objects and tools that may have no relation to the image on the screen.
