What would you ask Walter Murch if you had a chance? But just one question! Look forward to seeing some answers :)
Throughout the rest of the production process, great care is taken to ensure that the characters portrayed on screen are meaningful, believable, and compelling; how do you think about and approach the art of sound composition with regard to those ends? By which I mean:
1) To what degree do you treat sound as an aid to the actors' portrayal of character (i.e. supporting the suspension of disbelief).
2) To what degree do you consider the sound as a character unto itself.
Do you ever find these two elements to be in conflict with each other?
