    Sound design & editing has always been of particular interest to me. Being acutely aware of sounds in the environment along with music, and dialogue greatly impacts the feeling of an event. To be able to coordinate sound tracks with camera work and have it all come out in sync and with intended impact is quite a skill. Craig Polding definitely has the right stuff to accomplish this. I would be interested to know how long the program at Video Sympathy is to develop such a trade. Is the sound mixer on set for a movie similar to sound mixing for a concert? Once again I enjoyed listening to everyone on the show. Thanks also to Cindy for her sound affects & clarifying that the term”Dead Cat” is probably more appropriate than”muff” for certain sound filters. LOL
