Mix Magazine presented the fourth annual Sound for Film and TV event, an all-day exhibition and conference spotlighting the technologies and techniques behind sound for picture, from production to playback.

The boom in television and streaming services, along with the emergence of Virtual Reality, has led to a technology/workflow change in how content is produced. The techniques and tools are merging, and studios and producers have adapted their methods. We bring film, television and virtual reality all together on the legendary Sony Pictures Studios lot in Culver City, California on September 16th, 2017.

As the demands increase, so do the challenges facing post-production sound artists.

The key is that workflows and decision-making need to be flexible and innovative. Moderator: Mark Mangini Andrew De Cristofaro, Tony Lamberti, Jay Jennings, David Rowe, Juliann Slater
