Designing Sound teaches students and professional sound designers to understand and create sound effects starting from nothing. Its thesis is that any sound can be generated from first principles, guided by analysis and synthesis. The text takes a practitioner's perspective, exploring the basic principles of making ordinary, everyday sounds using an easily accessed free software. Readers use the Pure Data (Pd) language to construct sound objects, which are more flexible and useful than recordings. Sound is considered as a process, rather than as data -- an approach sometimes known as "procedural audio." Procedural sound is a living sound effect that can run as computer code and be changed in real time according to unpredictable events. Applications include video games, film, animation, and media in which sound is part of an interactive process. The book takes a practical, systematic approach to the subject, teaching by example and providing background information that offers a firm theoretical context for its pragmatic stance. [Many of the examples follow a pattern, beginning with a discussion of the nature and physics of a sound, proceeding through the development of models and the implementation of examples, to the final step of producing a Pure Data program for the desired sound. Different synthesis methods are discussed, analyzed, and refined throughout.] After mastering the techniques presented in Designing Sound, students will be able to build their own sound objects for use in interactive applications and other projects

As film students and younger fans experience "Big Hollywood Sound" in Imax presentations and digital theaters, many are also discovering action and adventure movies made well before they were born. There is a legacy to be enjoyed in the sound of these films: Blockbuster movies of the ‘80’s, and ‘90’s are notable for the extraordinarily dramatic impact of their sound mixing, and the way in which it could immerse audiences in a surrounding space. During this period, a small group of sound professionals in Hollywood wrote and published a critical journal about the craftsmanship, new technology, and changing aesthetics that excited conversation in their community. Their work has been edited and compiled here for the first time. David Stone is a sound editor, a veteran of roughly 100 Hollywood feature films, such as Gremlins, Top Gun, Die Hard, Speed, and Ocean’s 11. He was a Supervising Sound Editor for projects as varied as Predator, Edward Scissorhands, Beauty and the Beast, Batman Returns, City Slickers 2, and Dolores Claiborne. He has collected Golden Reel awards for Best Sound Editing five times, and won the 1992 Academy Award® for best Sound Effects Editing, for his supervising work on Bram Stoker’s Dracula. In 2015, he received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the San Luis Obispo Jewish Film Festival in California. Stone is now a Professor and former Chair of Sound Design at Savannah College of Art and Design. Between 1989 and 1994, he was the editor of Moviesound Newsletter, which was published by Vanessa Ament. Dr. Vanessa Theme Ament is the author of The Foley Grail, and a contributor to Sound: Dialogue, Music, and Effects (the Silver Screen Series). She is on the steering committee for Cinesonika, an international film festival and conference. A veteran Foley artist, sound editor, and voice actor from Los Angeles, she also writes and sings jazz, and is a member of the American Federation of Musicians, SAG-AFTRA, Actors Equity, and the Editors Guild. She worked on Die Hard, sex, lies, and videotape, Platoon, Predator, Edward Scissorhands, Beauty and the Beast, Noises Off, and A Goofy Movie, and many other films. Dr. Ament received her Ph.D. in Communication, in the area of Moving Image Studies, from Georgia State University in Atlanta, and is presently the Edmund F. and Virginia B. Ball Endowed Chair Professor of Telecommunications, at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. ?

Ein Lidschlag. Ein Schnitt. ist ein lebendiger, vielschichtiger und anregender Essay des gefeierten Film-Cutters Walter Murch über Filmschnitt und beginnt mit der grundlegenden Frage: Warum funktionieren Schnitte? Murch führt dem Leser anschaulich und unterhaltsam die ästhetischen und praktischen Probleme des Filmschnitts vor. Aus Erfahrung spricht er über Themen wie Kontinuität und Diskontinuität beim Schneiden; Traum und Wirklichkeit; Kriterien für einen guten Schnitt; den Lidschlag als emotionaler Schnitt; den digitalen Schnitt und vieles mehr. >Dies ist kein Lehrbuch über die Technik des Schneidens. Es beschäftigt sich mit den künstlerischen - und einigen technischen - Gründen, warum ich bestimmte Dinge tue und - basierend auf meiner Erfahrung - wie ich das meiste aus dem Prozeß des kreativen Schneidens heraushole.

Im Sommer 1969 erschüttert eine Reihe bestialischer Morde Los Angeles und die USA. Sharon Tate, die schwangere Ehefrau von Roman Polanski, ist eines der sieben Opfer des Serienmörders Charles Manson. Vincent Bugliosi war leitender Staatsanwalt in diesem spektakulären Fall. In seinem meisterhaft geschriebenen Buch berichtet er, wie es ihm in minutiöser Detektivarbeit gelang, Charles Manson und seine ihm blind ergebene Hippie-Kommune für das Massaker hinter Gitter zu bringen. Die akribischen Ermittlungen, der komplexe Prozess, die kranke Weltanschauung, die Manson seinen Anhängern einflößte ... all dies macht diesen atemberaubend spannenden Weltbestseller aus. Seit 1971 sitzt Manson im Hochsicherheitsgefängnis, doch vergessen ist er noch lange nicht. Er ist zu einer diabolischen Kultfigur geworden, deren apokalyptisches Szenario und verschrobene Weltanschauung auch heute noch eine makabere Faszination ausüben. Dies ist eine Neuausgabe des 2010 erschienen Buchs Helter Skelter - Der Mordrausch des Charles Manson.

Single Camera Video Production, fifth edition is intended for the beginning media student and as a reference for experienced media professionals to review the rapidly changing technology and production techniques in the digital media production field. Single Camera Video Production provides an overview of the entire video production process and is especially geared to present production techniques used in single-camera video production. Presented in a concise, easy-to-understand format, readers gain the insight they need to create their own (digital) video productions. Clear illustrations demonstrate the techniques presented in the book. An update is needed to reflect the rapid changes to the technology and industry, including nonlinear editing, digital production techniques, and high definition video production.

Praise for the last edition: "Single-Camera Video Production is easy reading for the newcomer yet it has enough depth for the video professional. Chapters on digital video, nonlinear editing and a full description of pre-production treatments and contracts make it an excellent resource." - Videomaker "The Focal Press Media Manual series sets out to deliver practical advice, technical know-how and practical skills in a direct, no-nonsense way, without information overload, making sure the essentials are all well-covered. Musburger's Single Camera Video Production, now in its fourth edition, faithfully sticks to this format, with surprising clarity for a complex technology...What is really good about this manual is that it explains every aspect of production and every role on set, but also how they dovetail to support each other...This is a manual that as the name suggests, you should keep close at hand. It is invaluable as a quick-access reference...a pocket book that will pay for itself time and time again throughout many productions." - www.shootingpeople.org

Keine wissenschaftliche Theorie ist auf solche Faszination auch außerhalb der Wissenschaft gestoßen wie die Allgemeine Relativitätstheorie von Albert Einstein, und keine wurde so nachdrücklich mit den Mitteln der modernen Physik überprüft. Wie hat sie diesen Test mit Raumsonden, Radioastronomie, Atomuhren und Supercomputern standgehalten? Hatte Einstein recht? Mit der Autorität des Fachmanns und dem Flair des unvoreingenommenen Erzählers schildert Clifford Will die Menschen, Ideen und Maschinen hinter den Tests der allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie. Ohne Formeln und Fachjargon wird der leser mit Einsteins Gedanken vertraut und erfährt von der Bestätigung seiner Vorhersagen, angefangen bei der Lichtablenkung im Schwerefeld der Sonne 1919 bis zu den ausgefeilten Kreiselexperimenten auf dem Space Shuttle. Die Allgemeine Relativitätstheorie hat nich nur alle diese Tests bestanden, sie hat darüber hinaus wesentlich beigetragen zu unserem Verständnis von Phänomenen wie Pulsaren, Quasaren, Schwarzen Löchern und Gravitationslinsen. Dieses Buch erzählt lebendig und spannend die Geschichte einer der größten geistigen Leistungen unserer Zeit.

Warum wurde der Jazz ausgerechnet in den 1920er Jahren zum dominanten Popularmusikstil? Was hat es mit der Rock n Roll-Revolution auf sich? Warum fanden Heavy Metal, Punk Rock und HipHop den Weg von diversen Subkulturen in die musikindustrielle Verwertung? Welche Auswirkungen haben neue Technologien und das Internet auf das Musikschaffen zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts? Diese und ähnliche Fragen versucht Kreativität und Innovation in der Musikindustrie zu beantworten. Das Buch versteht sich aber nicht nur als eine Geschichte der Musikindustrie seit der Erfindung des Phonographen durch Thomas Alva Edison im Jahr 1877, sondern bietet auch ein Erklärungsmodell, wie ästhetische, technologische, legistische, wirtschaftliche, soziale, politische etc. Veränderungen ineinander griffen und Strukturbrüche in der Musikindustrie auslösten. Zur Anwendung kommt ein integriertes Kreativitäts- und Innovationsmodell, mit dessen Hilfe so komplexe Wandlungsprozesse wie zum Beispiel die Entstehung der Rockmusik Mitte der 1950er Jahre ganzheitlich erklärt werden können. Das Modell ist aber auch der Ausgangspunkt für die Analyse gegenwärtiger Wandlungsprozesse in der Musikindustrie rund um die Themen MP3, Musiktauschbörsen im Internet und neue Geschäftsmodelle, die den Zugang zur Musik zur Dienstleistung machen. All das sind Indizien für einen erneuten Strukturbruch in der Musikindustrie, der als Teil der digitalen Revolution verstanden werden kann und ausführlich in diesem Buch zur Sprache kommt.
