Previously titled Audio Post-production in Video and Film, this third edition has been completely revised and restructured to provide a step-by-step guide to the professional techniques used to shape a soundtrack through the production process. Covering sound for both film and television, this edition includes many of the practical techniques and shortcuts used by experienced editors and mixers.
