If you are a regular reader of Designing Sound, you probable know about Ric Viers, great person and a true multi-disciplinary of sound (and probably one of the funniest ever). Ric will be sharing a lot of cool stuff this month, so stay tuned!
Ric Viers has worked in the film and television industry for over thirteen years. His location sound credits include nearly every major television network, Universal Studios, Dateline, Good Morning America, Disney, and many others. His sound design work has been used in major motion pictures, television shows, radio programs, and video games. In 2007, Viers launched his own label, Blastwave FX, to celebrate the release of his 100th sound effects library. To date, he is considered to be the world’s largest independent provider of sound effects, with nearly 200,000 sounds and more than 600 sound effects products to his credit.
About The Sound Effects Bible
According to George Lucas, “Sound is half the experience.” The Sound Effects Bible is the complete guide to recording, editing, and designing your own sound effects. If it snaps, crackles, pops, crashes, booms or bangs, it can be found somewhere in this first-ever book on the black art of Foley and sound effects. Imagine how your movies will come to life when you use the tried-and-true sound techniques that give films like The Lord of the Rings, Pirates of the Caribbean and There Will Be Blood deeper dimensions in storytelling.
This definitive book covers microphone selection, field recorders, the ABCs of digital audio, understanding digital audio workstations, building your own Foley stage, designing your own editing studio, sound design, and much more.
