What people say
“The Location Sound Bible is the first truly comprehensive guide to the acquisition of on-set production sound. I will recommend it to all of my students.”
—Peter Damski C.A.S., production sound mixer, Will & Grace, Hannah Montana
“Ric Viers takes an in-depth look into the world of location recording—the theory, the techniques, and the technology. Once you finish this book, you’ll start listening to the world around you a whole lot differently.”
—Scott Martin Gershin, sound designer/supervisor/mixer, Braveheart, Gladiator
“As a post-production professional and dialog editor, I know how critical it is to get beautiful sound when the camera rolls. Viers’ professional-level guidance fills in the knowledge gap for sound made far from Hollywood.”
—David Stone, IATSE, supervising sound editor; Academy Award® recipient, Best Sound Effects Editing, Bram Stoker’s Dracula
