Making Media takes the media production process and deconstructs it into its most basic components. Students will learn the basic concepts of media production: frame, sound, light, time, motion, sequencing, etc., and be able to apply them to any medium they choose. They will also become well grounded in the digital work environment and the tools required to produce media in the digital age.

The text is heavily illustrated and complete with sidebar discussions of pertinent issues.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for the first edition:
"The author does an admirable job of combining all aspects of traditional and new media in each chapter. The accompanying CD-ROM (future website) offers visual and audio examples of production design and is itself a good example of nonlinear programming in covering the concepts of storyboarding and releases, visual aesthetics, [and more]." -CHOICE
