When an audience watches a movie, they pay more attention to the sound than they do to the actual picture because the sound of a movie carries all of the emotional content, as well as the main source of information, via dialog. In your own productions, you can have poorly filmed video with dodgy contrast or saturation, but if your audio clips into distortion or has wildly fluctuating levels, viewer's will walk away.
Thankfully, we have a master of Video Post Production as a trainer at macProVideo.com - Bill Burgess
