Yeah, it is a craft. I mean, it might be interesting, but I had it now with this trailer. To be in the middle of the process would be a real thrill and fun, but watching a film about how sound making looks like in a specific film is not that appealing ...

It is a real mindEFF when you realize all of those pickup sounds they produce for nearly every single film. From coffee cups being placed in a table to keys being inserted into a lock. Damn crazy.
