Once the visuals of a movie are edited and the picture locked, it’s time to focus on crafting a compelling audio track. Understanding the components of how they are created, mixed together, and delivered is key in crafting the story you want to tell.
In this module you will learn the five components of audio and go to the sound studio to experience the construction of the audio for a scene.  Learn the ADR process, the contributions of Foley to the mix, the role of sounds effects and ambience, and the music.
