The world of cinema interest is ruled initially by actors, and secondly by directors. They always overshadow the other technical works in cinema, but for somebody getting into film, aspects like cinematography or editing are just as important to them.

However, the role of the sound designer and the importance of sound design are relegated to a secondary position, ignoring how essential they are in building a film. The mixing stage is the process capable of providing tension in any thriller, and the Foley recording is the process capable of inventing sounds for a film.

One of the reasons the sound design is discreet is the tradition of making it “invisible”. A classical film would tell us that a good sound design is the one an audience is unable to perceive. But with these 20 examples, we can see that sound design can be a creative and powerful tool capable of filling a film with different emotions, or even changing the speech behind the film.
