Summary "The clash of light sabers in the electrifying duels of Star Wars. The chilling bass line signifying the lurking menace of the shark in Jaws. The otherworldly yet familiar pleas to "phone home" in the enchanting E. T." "These are examples of the different ways sound can contribute to the overall dramatic impact of a film. To craft a distinctive atmosphere, sound design is as important as art direction and cinematography - and it can also be an effective tool to express the personalities of your characters."--BOOK JACKET.
