One of the key parts of any film or TV show today is music and sound. They give the viewer a sense of atmosphere, hope, fear, danger. They also allow loud sounds like doors slamming, glass breaking, and explosions, as well as barely noticeable sounds like breathing and feet shuffling, to come across well on screen. But who is behind these effects? This book explores the role of a sound mixer in the television and film industries, ways students can learn skills while in high school related to the career, expert advice on how to get involved and get a job in the field, and information about how sound mixing skills can be valuable in other careers.
