    Sound for filmmaking is not just about types of mics, proximity, and recording great dialog quality. It’s more of a Maestro concept https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maestro_concept Sound is a collaborative part of the filmmaking creative palette. What the audience hears when watching the movie includes elements that create moods, and emotions and move the story along.

    So many great movie moments were enhanced with sound or the lack of it. An actor walking through a crowded bar in silence or with music playing and the sounds of the crowd? Silence can be a climactic moment with as much emotional power as loud high decimal shouting or screaming. Example Crash: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBGUP51LTkw Sound is a very powerful and important aspect of the art of filmmaking and can create endless effects with infinite possibilities.

    Yes, there are many sounds that are included in a film. Many people believe that music is the only “artistic concept” of the sound, but there is foliage. For example, during autumn, the leaves fall and they make a sound. Many artists recreate these sounds to integrate them as best as they can in a movie

      There are many companies that provide the foliage that you need.

    After reading your post, Kim, I was wondering what is the equivalent of Gaffer for sound.
