But there are few that tackle the subject in a comprehensive manner for proper audio recording on set and then adding to those recordings in postproduction for a professional and well-mixed soundtrack. My book helps fill that niche.
Sudbury, MA (Vocus) September 29, 2010
Jones & Bartlett Learning is excited to announce the release of Audio Production and Postproduction by leading audio professional Woody Woodhall, CAS. This introductory, comprehensive text of audio practices for both production and post-production sound, emphasizes the importance of recording the sound properly on the set and explains the postproduction audio process as a creative collaboration that enhances the story and is not merely a “fix” for various audio problems.
“Sound is an often misunderstood and underappreciated skill and this text is meant to offer practical guidance and techniques. Through exercises and review material this text takes the reader from the mic'ing of actors to the final mixing and archiving of a project,” said Woody Woodhall, author and President of Allied Post Audio located in Santa Monica, California.
Designed for undergraduates enrolled in film-studies programs at colleges and universities, community colleges, and trade schools, this book offers extensive exercises and review questions to better understand the relationships between the gear and practices required for optimal recordings and mixes. Rather than merely explain the concepts of sound wave propagation, the electronics of how sound is recorded, or the acoustics of sound reverberation in spaces, these exercises are designed to demonstrate and reinforce these crucial ideas.
“There are many books in the marketplace that are specific to filmmaking and to digital audio,” Woody continued. “But there are few that tackle the subject in a comprehensive manner for proper audio recording on set and then adding to those recordings in postproduction for a professional and well-mixed soundtrack. My book helps fill that niche.”
