About Behind The Sound Cart: A Veteran's Guide To Sound

Product Description “Behind the Sound Cart: A Veteran’s Guide to Sound on the Set” details how the entire Sound team functions on today’s movie and television sets, while illuminating the overall picture of life on a production. Patrushkha Mierzwa, one of the first female boom operators in Hollywood, has worked on over 80 movies and television projects for major directors including Robert Rodriquez, Quentin Tarantino, James Gray, and Robert Altman. She has been a judge for the Emmys, an IATSE Sound Local 695 director, and given workshops globally over her long career in the industry. Her Sound Oscar-nominated movies include “Ad Astra” and “Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood." This book condenses 40 years of experience into a practical guide for you to be able to walk on to a film set with the confidence of a sound ninja.—Stuart Wilson, Sound Oscar winner, 1917Patrushkha takes you from the first work call to the final wrap, explaining the order of the work and the details that her decades of experience provides, so you can avoid mistakes that can sabotage your career before it’s even started. This book describes the job of the UST (Utility Sound Technician), a career almost invisible, yet extremely interesting, exciting—and paying up to six figures a year. It details how to act, how to relate to the crew, how to deal with and solve problems that are not just about sound itself—things you don’t learn at film school. * Discover tricks for microphone placement.* Understand how the UST interacts with the director, actors and producers.* Learn why you can know a lot about film yet still not sustain a career.* Get tips for balancing work and family life.* Pick up pointers for managing life in a freelance world. "More than anything I've ever read, this has grabbed me. Amazing to say the least from the material covered to the presentation. Anyone who is anyone in the world of sound (but not limited to just sound people) should be required to read this. Any UST that's serious about their craft had better read this with the same gusto that a priest reaches for the bible during a sermon. A masterpiece!"— Allen Lee Williams III, SOUND SPEEDS"Your writing has this lovely, personal, honest style to it that I justhaven’t seen in other industry-based literature. It is refreshing. And there is a SERIOUS amount of knowledge packed in there, it’s impressive. You are a powerhouse of knowledge, insight, and entertaining stories."—Monica Bannon, Recent film school graduate, Screenskills Programparticipant, United Kingdom"Patrushkha has written the book I wish I could have read when I started out.This is my go-to reference and should be in every film school on the globe."—Simon Clark, Head of Location Sound Recording, National Film & Television School, England Review Congratulations! Thank you so much for sending this. I will certainly leave a comment when it appears on international Amazon, and I'll also ping it across all of my networks and the various FB groups for sound and education. I think this is really going to help students, super down to earth, logical and clear. I knew that it'd be a great book after your visits and sessions with our students. You're a wonderful speaker and your voice comes right through clearly and concisely in this book. Congratulations again and I hope we get to invite you back to Greenwich again in the near future! Dr Andrew Knight-Hill Senior Lecturer in Sound Design and Music Technology, Creative Professions and Digital Arts, University of Greenwich, London. Patrushkha has written the definitive text about our craft, a book to learn from and to help those of us who teach. It's my go to reference and should be in every film school on the globe.
