This book is written for students enrolled on media production courses in further and higher education which include modules in radio broadcasting. It is particularly well suited to students in the United Kingdom who are taking BTEC Nationals and Higher Nationals, OCR Cambridge Technicals, and similar vocational media programmes. That said, this book contains much that radio trainers and trainees outside the context of mainstream education, and even of the UK, will also find helpful. The rules and conventions may vary, but the skills required to do the job are much the same everywhere. The emphasis is upon the practical issues that arise when you, the student, are experiencing for the first time the challenge of working as a member of a team to launch and run a broadcast or internet radio station, and you are being assessed on how well you do.

Perhaps you’ve always wondered how public radio gets that smooth, well-crafted sound. Maybe you’re thinking about starting a podcast, and want some tips from the pros. Or maybe storytelling has always been a passion of yours, and you want to learn to do it more effectively. Whatever the case—whether you’re an avid NPR listener or you aspire to create your own audio, or both—Sound Reporting: The NPR Guide to Audio Journalism and Production will give you a rare tour of the world of a professional broadcaster. Jonathan Kern, who has trained NPR’s on-air staff for years, is a gifted guide, able to narrate a day in the life of a host and lay out the nuts and bolts of production with equal wit and warmth. Along the way, he explains the importance of writing the way you speak, reveals how NPR books guests ranging from world leaders to neighborhood newsmakers, and gives sage advice on everything from proposing stories to editors to maintaining balance and objectivity. Best of all—because NPR wouldn’t be NPR without its array of distinctive voices—lively examples from popular shows and colorful anecdotes from favorite personalities animate each chapter. As public radio’s audience of millions can attest, NPR’s unique guiding principles and technical expertise combine to connect with listeners like no other medium can. With today’s technologies allowing more people to turn their home computers into broadcast studios, Sound Reporting couldn’t have arrived at a better moment to reveal the secrets behind the story of NPR’s success.

View: 1468

Introduction to Media Production began years ago as an alternative text that would cover ALL aspects of media production, not just film or just tv or just radio. Kindem and Musburger needed a book that would show students how every form of media intersects with one another, and about how one needs to know the background history of how film affects video, and how video affects working in a studio, and ultimately, how one needs to know how to put it all together. Introduction to Media Production is the book that shows this intersection among the many forms of media, and how students can use this intersection to begin to develop their own high quality work. Introduction to Media Production is a primary source for students of media. Its readers learn about various forms of media, how to make the best use of them, why one would choose one form of media over another, and finally, about all of the techniques used to create a media project. The digital revolution has exploded all the former techniques used in digital media production, and this book covers the now restructured and formalized digital workflows that make all production processes by necessity, digital. This text will concentrate on offering students and newcomers to the field the means to become aware of the critical importance of understanding the end destination of their production as a part of pre-production, not the last portion of post production. Covering film, tv, video, audio, and graphics, the fourth edition of Introduction to Digital Media promises to be yet another comprehensive guide for both students of media and newcomers to the media industry.

Resurrection -- the triumph over death -- has been the most enduring of human desires, found in all ages and in all cultures. This book, originally in two volumes, comprises all of Wallis Budge's work on Osiris, the great Egyptian god of immortality, and the many beliefs that surrounded his cult. A notable feature is that it traces the ancient worship of Osiris to Africa rather than to Asia. In the first part, Budge gives a complete history of Osiris, his name and iconography, and the rites and sacrifices associated with his worship, including human sacrifice. In the second part, he presents the cultic mysteries of Osiris, the African Doctrine of Last Things, the Goddess Isis and her cult and many other features of the worship of Osiris and Isis. This important work is essential for students of Egyptian and comparative religion, as well as all those who wish to know how, across the ages, humans have confronted mortality and the infinite.
