Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Holman--best known for his development of the THX Sound System--emphasizes the principles involved rather than specific equipment, with illustrations from actual production and post-production activities. He strikes a balance between aesthetic and technical content in his introduction to the field of recording, editing, mixing and exhibiting film and television audio. The accompanying CD-ROM demonstrates the key concepts discussed.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

-- The only text to present sound design as both an art and a science
-- Accompanying audio CD contains examples demonstrating key concepts
-- Written by one of Hollywood's leading sound designers
-- Provides a solid grounding in all aspects of the sound process

You might not know his name, but you know his initials (THX). Tom Holman's experiments have changed filmmaking for the better. Written by the 1996 winner of the Cinema Audio Society's Career Achievement Award, Sound for Film and Television covers the broad field of sound accompanying pictures, from the fundamentals through recording, editing, and mixing for films, documentaries, and television shows. The book provides a solid grounding in all aspects of the sound process. Basic principles are presented with illustrations on how they affect the day-to-day activities on a film or television set, in the editing room, and in the mix room. The accompanying audio CD demonstrates the key concepts discussed in the book.
