WHAT’S THE MEANING?
Although “lip syncing” (also known as lip synchronization) is a common terminology used in musical and theatrical performances, and film production, it is essential to define it to clear out any confusion that may be attached to it in relation to dubbing and miming. Lip syncing is the umbrella term used to describe the matching of speaking or singing’s lip movements with pre-recorded sung or spoken vocals. In the parlance of filmmaking, it is often part of the post-production stage. Dubbing, on the other hand, is often used if a movie is in a foreign language.
