Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The most comprehensive book on the market, SIGHT SOUND MOTION/APPLIED MEDIA AESTHETICS describes the major aesthetic image elements--light and color, space, time-motion, and sound--and how they are used in television and film. Zettl's comprehensive coverage of aesthetic theory and how that theory can be successfully applied place this text in a class by itself. This edition is richly illustrated with visuals that often draw on traditional art forms, such as painting, sculpture, and dance.

Herbert Zettl is a professor emeritus of the Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts Department at San Francisco State University (SFSU). While at SFSU, he headed the Institute of International Media Communication and received the California State Legislature Distinguished Teaching Award and, from the Broadcast Education Association, the Distinguished Education Service Award. Prior to joining the SFSU faculty, Zettl worked at KOVR (Stockton-Sacramento) and as a producer-director at KPIX, the CBS affiliate in San Francisco. While at KPIX, he participated in a variety of CBS and NBC network television productions.

Zettl is author of VIDEO BASICS, VIDEO BASICS WORKBOOK, TELEVISION PRODUCTION HANDBOOK, and SIGHT SOUND MOTION, which are translated into several languages and published internationally. Zettl developed an interactive DVD-ROM, ZETTL'S VIDEOLAB 3.0, published by Wadsworth/Cengage Learning.
