As soon as From the Shadows of Film Sound by Rob Bridgett was released I ordered it from Blurb. It’s a great read, and at the moment you can get it at a discount. The price only lasts until May 1 so get it while it’s hot.
As a practitioner in video game development, Rob Bridgett has explored and written about the connective tissue between film sound production and a newly emerging video game audio production culture. This new volume brings together, for the first time, freshly edited writings with many previously unpublished articles, documenting his work and thinking over the past ten years. This book is equally suited to film sound designers intrigued by game sound production as much as those in game sound wishing to further explore the meaning of cinematic sound. A fresh, insightful, and long overdue volume offering nourishment for students of sound as well as ammunition for sound artists working on the front line of development.
If the regular discount is not enough, you get 15% off any Blurb book by using the code 15OFFBOOK. Even though Bridgetts’ discount expires May 1 2012 you can use this code until May 30 2012.
From the Shadows of Film Sound is now included in our list of sound design books.
