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.

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.

"This is not another turgid guide to digital editing, writing for radio and the structure of a newsroom team. It is an ambitious and accessible study that combines a succinct narrative history of radio journalism with an analysis of its power in the public sphere. It describes the development of British audio broadcasting before locating it in an international context and contemplating the contours of the convergent future. Such ambition is often the prelude to failure. Instead, Starkey and Crisell have written a precious introduction to the theory, practice and purposes of radio journalism that will be very useful to serious students of the subject... This is a very good book." - THE (Times Higher Education) Radio Journalism introduduces key themes in journalism studies to explore what makes radio reporting distinctive and lay out the claims for radio's critical importance in the news landscape. With their extensive experience in radio production and academica, authors Guy Starkey and Andrew Crisell take readers on a tour through the past, present and future of radio broadcasting, from the infancy of the BBC in the 1920s up to the prospect of rolling news delivered to mobile telephones. Grounding each chapter in a survey of scholarly writing on the radio, they explore the connections between politics, policy and practice, inviting critical reflection on who radio professionals are, what they do and why. Putting theory and practice into dialogue, this book is the perfect bridge between unreflective production manuals and generalised media theory texts. Witty and engaging, Radio Journalism provides an essential framework for understanding the continuing relevance of radio journalism as a profession, set of practices and arena for critical debate.

Reviews: "The modest title of this book doesn't begin to reflect the ambitious scope of its design. From heady aesthetic theories to an explanation of the LLP form, Video Production Techniques provides one-stop shopping for theory, production, and business. Students of media criticism and the media industry would benefit from this book as much as students of production. After twenty-five years of teaching, I learned a lot from reading it." – Robert Thompson, Director, Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture, and Syracuse University "In the ever-evolving business of television and film, it's nice know that there is a source so accurately assembled, so dense with dynamic information, and at the end of the day, easy and enjoyable to read. Donald Diefenbach has put together an invaluable guide that I'm sure will be the bible for both young and experienced filmmakers alike." – Brett Weitz, Vice President, Fox21, division of 20th Century Fox Television I've been reading books that tell you how to make movies since the 1960s and this is far and away the best I've encountered.
