This is a long stretch but I'm wondering if there are any dvds of TV shows with sound design/editing/mixing extras. Interviews or making of docus would be awesome, but even a commentary would be great too. I know film dvds have quite a number, but I'm trying to do some research on broadcast and am coming up pretty empty handed.


One of the Lost DVDs (can't remember which season... probably 1 or 2) has some extra material about sound... But it's extremely brief if I remember correctly

  • Yep, they were going over the foley and ADR sessions and how they do the workflow for production. I think it was season 3 or so... some "a day of production" featurette. – VCProd May 25 '11 at 15:36

  • @Tak there are also some Webinars covering the sound of Lost on the Avid website - apps.avid.com/dream-big-sleep-well/webinar_archive.asp – James Bryant May 27 '11 at 2:49

There are quite a few DVD box sets that include interviews, "making of"s and commentaries, but most tend to focus on the sets, costumes, background, character development, etc - in fact, just about everything except the sound!

There are a few that come to mind as standing out (to me, at least) from the rest:

  1. Firefly - includes an interesting "making of"
  2. Fringe (Season 1) - contains some nice background and clever extras
  3. Lie To Me (Season 1) - includes an informative documentary
  4. Whitechapel (UK mini-series) - also includes an informative documentary
  5. ... OK, my mind just went blank (will check through my collection & add more if I get a chance)
  • Thanks for that! I was wondering about the box sets couldn't find anything relating to sound just as you said. Sigh... – user6513 May 25 '11 at 0:33
