For instant emotion, add music

Sometimes, after watching a movie or while watching a series, I’ll check out the soundtracks it has. Usually, I’ll be very surprised by how many soundtracks there are. Most of us would only notice the opening song, ending medley, the soundtrack used for epic moments and songs characters in the movie/series actually sing. The louder it is, the more likely it’d be noticed, but you’d be surprised how much even barely audible music can influence a scene. Especially scenes involving emotions.

It’s the reason why sometimes, when we try to imitate scenes from movies in real life, it doesn’t quite have the same effect. A person standing on the road with a cape fluttering in the wind would be loony. A person standing on the road with a cape fluttering in the wind with epic music in the background might look majestic. At least, people would enjoy the music. Try watching your favourite action movies without sound. Their epic moments aren’t likely to be so epic anymore.
