Using professional sound libraries and movie scene analysis, the veteran Musicians Institute instructor (and top studio engineer and industry consultant in production and post-production) demonstrated the recording and editing techniques involved in synchronizing background and sound effects as well as what is involved in Foley sessions (footsteps and props) for film.
