Practical Art of Motion Picture Sound, 4e relies on the professional experience of the author and other top sound craftspeople to provide a comprehensive explanation of film sound, including mixing, dubbing, workflow, budgeting, and digital audio techniques. Practically grounded with real-world stories from the trenches throughout, the book also provides relevant technical data, as well as an appreciation of all the processes involved in creating optimal motion picture sound. New to this edition are exclusive sound artist lessons from the field (including 2 new production cases studies), including insight from craftspeople who have worked on the latest Harry Potter and Batman films. Any and all technological changes have been updated, and new to this edition is the inclusion of a fully revamped DVD. All of the features from the prior edition's DVD are still included, but new to this one is a series of 10 minute video interviews with professional motion picture sound craftspeople, including established supervising sound editors, music composers, dialog editors, sound transfer engineers, foley artists, mastering engineers, and dozens others.
