EPISODE TWELVE: TELLING STORY WITH SOUND (10MINUTES17SECONDS)
An audience will forgive a poor picture but they will not forgive poor sound. Here is a man who works in perfect sound. Designer Eric Norris has had his name on so many cinematic experiences over his three decade career, creating through sound the visceral feel of a world long gone, far, far away or not even here yet. And through it all he’s just like any other filmmaker: he’s trying to tell a story the best way he can. It's an art form he is doing spectacularly well.
