Sound mixer: Creating a Short Film: 06 Working on Set

The sound mixer is the person in film production that records the sound on set. This is usually done with a combination of a boom mic on a boom pole and well-concealed lavalier microphones. The sound mixer is also referred to as the sound recordist or boom operator. Sound mixers monitor the audio on the film set, and notify the director of the movie if something amiss was heard.
