The sound level and thus audio is just as important for film and video as the visual aspects. Many experts are convinced that the effect of a video depends on the sound level by more than 50%.

Audio, film sound and audio post-production
Nevertheless, audio production or sound editing (including sound post-production) often leads a wallflower existence. This is all the more incomprehensible because the price/performance ratio of sound in particular is many times higher than that of the filming.
This applies to music composition (soundtrack) as well as to off-commentary, off-voice, sound design or dialogue.
A special challenge is not only the recording of original sound on the film set, which should later sound as real as possible. The relationship between the individual soundtracks must also be mastered. The dramaturgy and / or the intended message of a scene determines whether film music, sound design or the language level (dialogue, commentary, narrative voice) dominates the audio level.
This is one of the reasons why many composers, especially for corporate films, but also for feature films, demand sovereignty over sound design or even sound mixing. This gives them the certainty that the general comprehensibility of the language is not given priority, as it is on TV, and that all other artistic-emotional aspects of the sound are only added to the soundtrack as a vegetable.
