The main motivation for this study was to find Individual Subjective Preferences (ISP) for the relationship between SPL and different cinema shot sizes. By means of the psychophysical method of Adjustment (MA) , the preferred SPL for four of the most frequently used shot sizes, i.e., long shot, medium shot, medium close-up, and close-up, was subjectively quantified. Also using the Constant Stimulus Method , the preferred difference of SPL for different combinations of the above-mentioned shot sizes was studied. The results of this study could be used to develop sound mixing criteria for audiovisual productions.
