In recent years, we have seen how sound has gained great importance in the industry of audiovisual creation, not only as an accessory but also as an element with indisputable narrative capabilities. In this process, the sound designer plays a vital role in taking decisions that will drastically determine the result of a film production. Starting from his experience in the world of sound creation, as a result of a longstanding professional career, Charly Schmukler, one of the most renowned national sound artists, leads us into the world of sound design for films and videogames, dealing with issues such as language and audiovisual production, immersive sound, and audio post-production techniques.
