Something about your thoughts on audio?
Please care about audio!!! As George Lucas once said, "Sound is 50 percent of the movie going experience, and I've always believed audiences are moved and excited by what they hear...as much as by what they see." Sound quality has become the ugly stepchild of the entertainment industry, but it is so easy to educate yourself or find someone to help you achieve the audio set up + sound of your (and your clients') dreams.
