This is called <em>looping</em>. Another function of post production is to add incidental sound effects not captured during the original scenes.

<strong>Many directors and producers rely heavily on the ability of post production teams to create a marketable film.</strong> Since principal shooting can be a hectic time for both actors and directors, some footage may prove to be unusable during the post production editing process. A film’s original ending may also be unpopular with test audiences.
This could lead to reshoots with the principal actors before a final film is produced. Other responsibilities during post production may include publicity tours, contracts with distributors and the creation of auxiliary formats such as DVDs and soundtrack albums.
