After recording the dialogue, the music and the sound effects, the film needs a professional sound mixer who is trained and has the ear to ensure that a proper balance is achieved while highlighting the sound elements that need to come to the fore in any scene.  The sound mixer operates a recording console much like what is used in producing the master records for a CD but the output is a single stereo or multi-channel digital or film soundtrack for a movie. A resume for the position may require a portfolio of sound mix samples from the movies you have worked in.
