The latest hot camera is pretty irrelevant if one can’t understand what’s happening on screen. The key to any narrative is in the dialogue and voice over, but if this is unintelligible or difficult to hear, viewers will soon lose interest. With real world applications and a narrative to keep the reader’s interest, Production Sound Mixing is the indispensable guide for film and video audio recording. Written by veteran sound mixer John J. Murphy, the book offers a step by step collaborative journey through the basic physics of sound, concluding with a practical guide of the latest techniques and equipment available to all who are interested in the best audio for their projects. Structured to mimic a -week semester, each chapter begins with an audio problem to be solved and ends with a solution drawn from information gleaned from past chapters. Suggested movie scenes that demonstrate the relevant audio techniques will also be included. Equally applicable to studio and location recording, the book is oriented toward commonly accessible environments such as conference rooms, hallways, beaches, car interiors, bathrooms, and so on. The intent is to allow the student to make the best of a location no matter how challenging it might be. Most importantly, this book will make one aware of the potential of sound on screen, for it is truly 50% of the viewing experience.

    The Regime- Looking In: South African Short Stories
    Stephen Hawking wrote a book a Brief History of Time and in a sense this is what this book is all about a brief history or slice out of the Afrikaner peoples existence in Southern Africa A glimpse of their achievements their failures and disappointments not through the eyes of an historian but through entering into their lives their homes experiencing their pain laughing at their idiosyncrasies walking next to them in their everyday experiences at home at work at war and at play After some deliberation it was decided that the best way to achieve this goal would be by using the medium of short stories and to concentrate on the time period 1930 to 2000 It is felt that future historians will recognize this period as the most dramatic and signifi cant in the rise and fall of the Afrikaner nation as well as the birth of the so called rainbow nation
