The author discusses the significance of good sound in assuring good impact of movie images on the audience. He notes that good images are useless without proper sound combination. Sound adds to images' essence because good sound creates good connection with the viewers. He suggests that film shooters should focus on the camera's image quality and on the security of the audio section. They should also be equipped with the skills and gear of sound recordists.
