Dynamics, interesting,works realy well, just the right sound at the right moment which tells you everything what is required.

Too much information -- Sound interesting but requires too much attention, other than the video..

SUBJECTIVE *** SENSE OF REALISM

Tips for Foley recording -- Imagine a real life, how loud do you hear a sound,,far away sounds,,close sounds,,whispering anything,, Imagine a real life scenerio and present it..you dont hear foleys direct through ear.
Footsteps-- you are never too close to footsteps , so they dont have to be loud..

Glass smashing : Imagine a glass falling down,,compared to the full impact of a loud blast of a glass..A lot of times sound act as a enhancer,,in that way you present a loud smash of the glass.. Enhancment of the experience..

Violin -- Needs natural reverb,open space,harmonics to be heard..
close miking takes away teh thrill from teh sound..

Sonic Design aspect ******Contrast between scenes

Source Music and Score Music***** OR***** Diegetic and non diegetic music
