"A comprehensive guide to creating, editing and finalizing soundtracks for film and TV...Well illustrated with plenty of practical examples, this is recommended." - Sound & Lighting International

"Any reader engaged in this field will want to possess their own copy. It makes riveting reading with many excellent illustrations helping the understanding."
Image Technology

"It's a book which will have something for everyone - even the most experienced technician. But its real value lies in its comprehensive overview of the art of producing sound for vision - a must for the student."
Playback Journal

"What is really interesting about this book is the techniques and technical knowledge - it is packed with little nuggets of useful information that will really impact on your work and workflow if you take them on board."
Focus magazine

"...is a good introduction to the process of producing a soundtrack to accompany a TV or Film shoot, and gives step by step instructions as to how the various professional techniques are used on the set...I would say that this is a useful and interesting book for beginners and essential reading for any student before being let loose on a set..." - BKSTS, May 2006

Format: Paperback
This is the book I wanted to write! There are many books out there around this subject, but this text is comprhensive AND comprehensible! It covers every area of the post production process ( and a good deal of giudance for the recording of production sound too) in exactly the amount of detail that is needed, with each technical topic supported by useful and informative technique and advice.

The chapters on editing sound give many valuable pointers that will help anyone who is learniung this craft to develop a strong skills base, with really useful practical tips. There is no important technical information missing; all the standards and formats are addressed and explained in easy to read language, so that you're not left with an incomplete picture, and it's up to date with contemporary systems such as Windows XP and Mac OSX, hard disk recording and digital TV, DVD, diffusion systems for broadcast (surround) and more.

So to sum up, this is a really good read, and worth having as a reference book for anyone studying or working in this field who wants to get a a good understanding of the entire process of audio post, and I would also recommend it to film makers as well, as it is a good read and will inform and enlighten.

I have included it my essential reading list for students on our film and sound design courses.

Format: Paperback
A modern, up to date and informative guide to audio post production techniques used in todays complex industry.

Hilary describes each step of the audio post production process, from a locked picture edit, through to final mixing and deliverables.

Chapters on editing give the reader a unique insight into how a sountrack is created and prepared for the mix, using techniques that Hilary has acquired from working on many feature films and television programmes.

A must have book for anyone wanting to gain knowledge and understand sound in the modern film and television industry.

Format: Paperback
I've been mixing and Recording music for 15 years and have done a number of major motion pictures now, but always felt slightly in the dark regarding some of the technical jargon and workflow for Film and TV post production. This book is clear, to the point, easy to read, and a constant source of reference for me as more and more work i do is for Film and TV. As someone who has had a lot of experience in audio, I really appreciate that the delivery of detail is not dummied down, but that it's nor over explained either. This is a great launchpad for people needing to grasp a fundamental overview of the whole process. It should be required reading for anyone who considers themselves a TV or Film or Commecial producer.
