The Foley Grail: The Art of Performing Sound for Film, Games, and Animation
Average rating
4 / 5
Good book.
April 14th, 2014
Inside is a wealth of information on sound for motion pictures. Focusing largely on foley. The anecdotes and advice are well worth the read. The book is consistently repetitive throughout. And is littered with grammatical errors. Some of which could be the result of kobo formatting. Regardless, it was bothersome.
