Product description

Review

"Written for 'everyone interested in sound,' Yewdall, a veteran of over 140 theatrical motion pictures, covers all aspects of motion picture sound engineering, art, and design. The book is full of commonsense advice garnered from years of working in the industry illustrated with entertaining and educational anecdotes and supplemented with stories from and about other professionals in the field. Yewdall's commonsense approach extends from the technical to the artistic aspects of recording and mixing. He describes the craft and explains the roles of professional roles in Hollywood sound design, from the dialog editor to the composer to Foley artists. He covers hardware, software, best practices, and offers cautionary notes. Illustrations help clarify and demonstrate concepts. The included DVD contains over 1,000 sound effect audio files available for license-free use."--SciTech Book News
