Reality TV Audio

I always like to learn new things and the whole art of motion picture audio is fascinating.
The first thing to learn is that it is an art, rather than a technical skill. What I mean by this is that motion picture audio is not about recreating reality but about creating the illusion of reality. The first is a technical skill the latter is an art. In practise, you would neither want to recreate the sonic reality of "Reality TV" nor to use the workflow constraints that face many reality TV shows. It's like faking (recreating) a location news report (which have crappy sound) by filming the scene and deliberately recording crappy sound, there's a world of difference between the illusion of crappy sound and actually having crappy sound!
