White is achieved by mixing light.
Brown or black or gray is achieved by mixing pigments.

Depends if youre mixing paint or light. Plus I'm colourblind so I dont care. Next.

"So how do you get brown?"

I understand all of the colour stuff having done additive and subtractive mixing as part of an animation course. I don't understand how they can get the sound out of sync with video though.
