The other day a friend shared a link to a video that had me in stitches and reminded me of the importance of using the right music in your videos.
Music is very important, it has the power to conjure images in our minds that aren’t actually there. A trick I learnt as a teenager was not to run behind the sofa and cover my eyes when watching a scary film, but to put my fingers in my ears. Without that suspenseful, threatening music (think Psycho, Jaws or Paranormal Activity which reportedly used infrasound) the visuals took on a different meaning and their power to frighten was reduced. Why not try it yourself when you next watch a thriller!
