About This Episode

Before I had this conversation with Vickie I just found sound to be…how do I say this eloquently- sound? I never truly understood how sound was used in film. I mean of course I know sound is important but I definitely never looked and appreciated it as its own art form…..at least not until I spoke with Vickie.
