“Every shot has an important bit of plot, otherwise it wouldn’t be there. And there would be only one sound, one sound effect that would assist one element of that storytelling. Try to find, what that is and use that, and only that. And then think what else I need to make it flow, to make it work. It’s about finding the appropriate sound. Say, that awkward squeak you here and know that something awful now is about to happen. It’s not the picture, because it’s not there yet. But the sound is assisting hugely. It informs you about the things that are happening not necessarily even being there.”
