That Sounds Fun: The Joys of Being an Amateur, the Power of Falling in Love, and Why You Need a Hobby by Annie F. Downs
We know there are certain things we must have to survive--food, shelter, and safety to name a few. But there are also aspects of life that truly allow us to be joyful and fulfilled. For popular podcaster and bestselling author Annie F. Downs, fun is close to the top of that list. Few would argue that having fun doesn't enrich our lives, but so much gets in the way of prioritizing it. Tough days, busyness, and feelings that are hard to talk about keep us from the fun that's out there waiting to be found. With That Sounds Fun, Annie offers an irresistible invitation to understand the meaning of fun, to embrace it and chase it, and to figure out what, exactly, sounds fun to you--then do it! Exploring some research and sharing some thoughts behind why fun matters, she shows you how to find, experience, and multiply your fun. With her signature storytelling style and whimsical vulnerability, Annie is the friend we all need to guide us back to staying true to ourselves and finding the fun we need.
Behind the Sound Cart: A Veteran's Guide to Sound on the Set by Patrushkha Mierzwa
Publisher: Ulano Sound Services, Inc.
"I was tasked with designing the communication system for Brad Pitt's spacesuit in "Ad Astra". A Sound Mixer told me to sweep the gravel of Western Town for a walk-and-talk dolly shot between two cowboys because it made too much noise under their boots. Another Mixer asked me to walk up 78 stairs to the top of a stage at night to find a cricket that was chirping - and then spray him with hairspray so his legs would stick together and not chirp. When I was booming a scene of an actress milking a cow, the cow peed on camera - and me! And I wouldn't trade those experiences for anything, because I love making movies!" Patrushkha Mierzwa, authorThis book illustrates the job of The Utility Sound Technician (UST), a career almost invisible, yet extremely interesting and exciting - and paying a high five figures a year. Ms. Mierzwa's book creates a process that has heretofore been non-existent, relying upon on-the-job training. The book identifies traits and characteristics of successful USTs and details the myriad responsibilities in pre-production and production. Special features include standardized forms and addressing scene elements that could take a lifetime to experience and learn from. Ms. Mierzwa takes you from the first work call to the final wrap, explaining the order of the work and the details that experience can provide, so you don't make mistakes that can sabotage your career before it's even started. More than the tasks and importance of preparation, you'll learn about the social dynamics of a set and why you can know a lot about film but not be able to sustain a career.Target market: Film school students or graduates, people considering sound as a career in movies & television, any working professionals who are curious about how to get better at their jobs, people who enjoy an inside look at the practical business of movie-making.
