Not many people know what a dubbing mixer is. 

David Drake wants to change that, having worked on shows like Fleabag, The Bay and The End of the F***ing World.

There are a few key roles in a sound team: the dialogue editor effects editor, foley artist, composer and dubbing mixer. 

“A dubbing mixer is someone who takes all those elements, the dialogue, effects, music, then mixes, processes and treats them so you end up with a finished soundtrack,” Drake explains.

Is this The End of the F***ing World?

“I think everyone can relate to that [feeling]” comments the 34-year-old. “When you’re 16 and you think everything’s conspiring against you.”

The award-winning drama garnered a cult following almost overnight earlier this year when it debuted on Channel 4 and shortly followed globally on Netflix.
