Comments:
As a sound operator, there is  one aspect that I have identified regarding the sound. The background noise of the fridges, air conditioner and freezers will be impossible to avoid. As the riffle mic is really sensitive, we’ll definitely have a constant ‘brrrr’ throughout our sound. There is nothing really to do about it, so I will try my best to fix this when editing.
