9780240813301: Sound for Film and Television

Sound for Film and Television, Third Edition provides a thorough introduction to the fascinating field of recording, editing, mixing, and exhibiting film and television sound. It strikes a fine balance between aesthetic and technical content, combining theory and practice to approach sound as both an art and a science. This new edition has been completely updated to reflect the latest advances in HD technology, new hardware and software systems, new distribution methods, wireless sound capture, and more. Also, analog-related content has been reduced and transferred to the chapters covering historical techniques. Sections on troubleshooting and FAQs have been added to help you avoid common pitfalls in sound production.

Written by one of Hollywood's leading sound experts, Sound for Film and Television provides a solid grounding in all aspects of the sound process. Basic principles are presented with illustrations demonstrating 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 DVD contains more than 50 tracks that demonstrate practical, real-world examples of key concepts presented in the book.

He has won career achievement awards from CAS and the Custom Electronics Design and Installation Association.

Review:

"The best overall technical introduction to film sound...As one would expect from the developer of the THX Sound System, among many other achievements, this book has a comprehensive approach and features one of the best introductions to psychoacoustics that you'll read anywhere."--Larry Blake, Mix Magazine

"The book provides a fascinating and incredibly informative introduction to the world of film and television sound and is well recommended."--James Eade, Lighting and Sound International

"Holman covers a lot of ground in just over 250 pages. His knowledge of the subject and many of the major industry players is evident. Sound for Film and Television is a concise, informative, entertaining, and intimate review that can serve as an introduction to the subject for the student and a snapshot of current techniques and processes for the practitioner."--The Journal of the Audio Engineering Society
