Download or read book The Palgrave Handbook of Sound Design and Music in Screen Media written by Liz Greene and published by Springer. This book was released on 2016-12-14 with total page 468 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book bridges the existing gap between film sound and film music studies by bringing together scholars from both disciplines who challenge the constraints of their subject areas by thinking about integrated approaches to the soundtrack. As the boundaries between scoring and sound design in contemporary cinema have become increasingly blurred, both film music and film sound studies have responded by expanding their range of topics and the scope of their analysis beyond those traditionally addressed. The running theme of the book is the disintegration of boundaries, which permeates discussions about industry, labour, technology, aesthetics and audiovisual spectatorship. The collaborative nature of screen media is addressed not only in scholarly chapters but also through interviews with key practitioners that include sound recordists, sound designers, composers, orchestrators and music supervisors who honed their skills on films, TV programmes, video games, commercials and music videos.

Book excerpt: The Music Documentary offers a wide-range of approaches, across key moments in the history of popular music, in order to define and interrogate this prominent genre of film-making.

Download or read book Screens of Blood written by Gregory Desilet and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2014-01-27 with total page 241 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Civilization seems to move ever more toward the power of words over weapons. But many people, especially Americans, still believe wrongs in life can be righted with a fist or a gun or a bomb. Cultural mythology lags reality and continues to send the message of regeneration through violence. But the transition to a healthier mythology is already underway and can be seen in the strength of an alternative trend in depictions of violence in storytelling. This book examines this trend by comparing examples drawn from film and television with the traditional popular dramatic approach--reflecting and promoting a culture of violence. This comparison shows that attitudes toward conflict in drama are a key indicator of a shift in awareness of violence in society. The book concludes with an account of increasing challenges confronting the individual in today's world and the necessity for individual producers and consumers to take greater responsibility for their choices--which shape culture through omnipresent and profoundly influential screen technology.

What holds you back from realizing that potential right now? What is pushing you down instead of pulling you up? Moving up might feel like something too daunting to achieve, but the good news is that up is a direction not a destination. Today is the day you begin moving forward as author Brent Yates shows you how to unshackle and propel yourself into a more abundant life. From the outside, Brent Yates had it all—money, success, a beautiful wife and family—but inside, he was dying. One by one, everything that he valued was taken from him until he was suicidal and crippled with a mysterious malady that no doctor could identify. Instead of giving up, he decided to pinpoint what wasn’t working in his life and embark on a quest to discover happiness. By implementing a holistic approach, Brent found the three pillars of a healthy life to be rooted in the spiritual, mental, and physical. You might be battling with some of the same issues that Brent had—depression, loneliness, and feeling life was without purpose—or maybe you simply feel stuck right now. The Gravity of Up is a blueprint to lose the old, negative thoughts and embrace a new world-altering mindset. Now, happy and healthy, Brent is living proof that the formula works and is eager to help you move up!
