“Occupational hazard. I believe seeing how these scenes that we labored on [fit in] as a result of usually you’re not given the sound engaged on video results as you don’t actually need it, and on a mission like that [Skyfall or Spectre] they’re making an attempt to maintain it underneath wraps, it’s on a must know foundation.
