I will be premiering material from my forthcoming book How Documentaries Work at the 74th annual University Film & Video Association Conference. Based on interviews with the sound mixers of two Academy Award nominated documentaries, this lecture goes behind the scenes to show how sound in documentaries is more than meets the ear.
