Making Media takes the media production process and deconstructs it into its most basic components. Students will learn the basic concepts of media production: frame, sound, light, time, motion, sequencing, etc., and be able to apply them to any medium they choose. They will also become well grounded in the digital work environment and the tools required to produce media in the digital age. A CD-ROM, compatible with both Macs and PCs, will provide interactive exercises for each chapter, allowing students to explore the process of media production. The text is heavily illustrated and complete with sidebar discussions of pertinent issues.

Focusing on the building blocks that transcend the boundaries between film, television, multimedia, and the Internet, this highly illustrated and interactive text stresses the commonalities of various types of media and prepares the student to succeed within a wide range of disciplines.

*Prepares students to move with ease into any number of media disciplines - film, video, photography, audio, multimedia
*Includes companion CD-ROM with interactive exercises
*Highly illustrated throughout

"The author does an admirable job of combining all aspects of traditional and new media in each chapter. The accompanying CD-ROM offers visual and audio examples of production design and is itself a good example of nonlinear programming in covering the concepts of storyboarding and releases, visual aesthetics, light quality, brightness and contrast, color mixing, color temperature, sound mixing, camera movements, sequencing of still images, and examples of persistence of movement and the phi phenomenon."
