As with any production-related book, 'Audio Production and Post-Production' covers the tools and techniques required to produce a quality film soundtrack. Unlike other books, it discusses the intangibles that might trip up the uninitiated. Rather than immediately delving into the technical elements, the author covers the equally essential aspects of planning, crew dynamics and resource management (to name a few.) He does all of this while maintaining an objective-oriented approach, taking the time and space to ensure the reader understands how it all relates to the goal of a quality audio project (and indeed to the film itself) to ultimately tell the story.
What's remarkable about this comprehensive perspective is the simple yet universal manner in which it is eloquently written. For example, rather than getting mired down in a technical overview of the most-expensive, cutting-edge piece of editing software available (likely to be obsolete upon first reading), the author relates editing principles to Final Cut Express, assuming that, even without an operator's manual, the reader can easily relate the techniques to their chosen platform.Read more ›
This book is written by a pro, yet he makes it easy for the non-pro to get it, to learn the best way to get the technically correct tracks as well as a rich sound recording. Mr. Woodhall's information and advice applies to all levels of audio work. I learned a lot and highly recommend this paperback to anyone wanting to do right both in the first stages of recording and on through the final stages of post production of multi-track delivery for various media.
Beyond just talking about sound, the book also includes a CD with sounds to show what effect microphone placement or the wall treatment of a room produces, various ambiances, and some additional utility files.
The book is specifically aimed at the novice, but also includes occasional tips that the professional will also find useful.
