I guess sound in general seems like an after thought in film; whether it be post production mixing, or the actual underscore. And for most directors, it's usually the one subject they know the very least about. In a way I understand why they don't bother to put as much of a care on it. I haven't devoted my time to understand the different types of camera shutter speeds, or filters, or lighting, color correction, & etc. when it comes to making films, because my thing is solely the music. So wouldn't really expect a director to put as much time into understanding what goes into a great audio mix. But, it IS their responsibility to get the best final product delivered. And the audio is 50% of what makes or breaks the film. These are awesome tips posted. Thanks Timothy!!!!
Filmmakers NEED to know. Their ability to do things properly can make or break their chances of distribution/a career. It's THEIR final product that is going out into the marketplace. I think it is good for composers to know about the filmmaking process too if for nothing more they can understand the language if necessary.
