Summary, etc.: "Practical Art of Motion Picture Sound, Third Edition, comprehensively examines the subject of sound for motion pictures and television productions with an emphasis on real-world problems and solutions. The book will show you how to achieve great sound despite a small budget, lack of equipment, and less-than-perfect recording conditions. Based on the experience of the author and other top sound craftspeople, and firmly grounded in practical techniques, this book provides real-life examples and relevant technical data as well as an appreciation of the processes involved in creating an artful audio experience. It examines sound from the point of view of the key figures in the sound department, who not only describe today's practices, but also offer practical advice to guide the reader around myriad pitfalls."--BOOK JACKET.
