Compromising on Sound If you want good sound, you will need to spend. There seems to be a misconception among many amateur filmmakers that sound isn’t as important as every other element in a film. This is completely untrue. Sound enhances the overall experience of the movie and having good sound can actually help create the atmosphere you’re looking for. So, make sure your sound is as good as everything else in the movie. Never compromise. Even it costs you a bomb, go for it. The decision will eventually pay off.
