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.

Introduction to Media Production

The Path to Digital Media Production

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.
