This site is dedicated to aspiring Polish designers and sound producers who plan to work or study in the UK. I will be posting English words and phrases from the world of media production with a special importance given to audio and video terminology.
As I study in the UK I encounter interesting words on a daily basis so I will try to post one of them each day

Word of the day:
Aperture of the iris (video)
Aperture- szczelina, otwarcie, iris- przyslona,
Aperture of the iris can be altered to influence the depth of field. The depth of field increases with decreasing aperture of the iris. It means that the smaller the iris aperture the larger the depth of field (the distance you can focus the lens on) but at the same time less light goes through the iris.
Room tone (sound design)
Room tone- ton, dzwiek pomieszczenia
Room tone is the background noise on set or location of the film shoot. It is also called a ‘bed’ and might be used by sound producers to create atmosphere of a whole scene.,
Wild track(sound design)
doslownie ‘dzika sciezka’
Recording made on location that contains the atmosphere noise of the outside space. Also often used by sound designers to add continuity to the dialogs recorded on location.
