Moving from Stills to Video: Audio, Audio, Audio

Audio is extremely important. Photographers haven’t really had to worry about this, but it is something that can make or break your videos. Watch some of your favorite movies and pay close attention to the sound—you will probably pick up some audio cues or effects that amplify the scene or action.

Clarity in audio is one of the most important things for keeping your audience immersed in the world of a film.
