Recently, I have been working on the crews of different short films as favors to friends. Getting extremely into the who technical aspect of filmmaking, I have specifically peaked interest in audio and sound mixing. I always knew that audio was one of the most important aspects, but I did not realize of intricate the art of sound can be.
Audio can make or break a film. A movie can have amazing acting and great visuals, but if the sound is not good, the film can be hard to sit through. To achieve good sound quality, there are a few different things you need. 1. You need some gear. The great doesn't have to be great, but it has to be able to do the job. 2. You need expertise. You have to have an understanding of how sounds moves, and the different electronic levels. 3. You need to be able to work with a team. This is extremely important due to the necessity of having help and others who understand what their own jobs entail.
With all of these aspects combined good quality audio can be produced. To be fully experienced, it takes years of training and patience. This is why I have so much respect for the audio guys on every film or television show.
