LoBrutto's respondents are extremely articulate about the concepts and goals that guide their work, and the detailed portraits they offer of the issues and strategies involved in creating film sound provide essential data for critics and theorists of cinema sound. Lay readers will find this to be an interesting and enjoyable account."-Film Quarterly

Format: Paperback
If you have the slightest curiosity, buy the book! This is an engrossing book of interviews with experts in film sound. LoBrutto doesn't just limit himself to sound editors (though you should buy the book for his interview of Walter Murch alone!) but also interviews production sound mixers, ADR and foley mixers, and creators of film sound systems. I work in film post production, and though I don't have a lot of knowledge of the sound editing, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. LoBrutto references many films in his interviews and the reader will find an abundance of delightful anecdotes. Well worth it, for those who know film and those who don't.

If you're intersted in movie sound, this one is a gem. LoBrutto interviews the people who made some of the greatest impacts in film sound in the last 25 years. We're not just talking about legends like Ben Burtt and Walter Murch (Star Wars & Apocalypse Now, respectively) but the whole gauntlet of roles that make up what we hear at the movies. Production sound mixers, ADR (looping) editors, Foley artists, supervision sound editors, sound designer, boom mikers, music editors. You get conversations with top names in every field. I learned a great deal about what goes into making the overlooked half of what makes a great movie.

To me it's very important to know the history,how and why some decisions were made , how those audio gurus changed the audio industry on movies.
This book should be a must have for audio guys,specially for those who take audio seriously.
