Practical Art of Motion Picture Sound Reviews

Written for 'everyone interested in sound,' Yewdall, a veteran of over 140 theatrical motion pictures, covers all aspects of motion picture sound engineering, art, and design. The book is full of commonsense advice garnered from years of working in the industry illustrated with entertaining and educational anecdotes and supplemented with stories from and about other professionals in the field. Yewdall's commonsense approach extends from the technical to the artistic aspects of recording and mixing. He describes the craft and explains the roles of professional roles in Hollywood sound design, from the dialog editor to the composer to Foley artists.
