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!

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.Simon Clark, National Film & Television School, England
This book condenses years of experience into a practical guide to get you ready to walk onto a film set with the confidence of a sound-ninja.Finally, a comprehensive text teaching one of the most demanding, yet unsung disciplines in the movie making world; Bravo!Stuart Wilson, Oscar winner, 1917, 6-time Oscar nominee for sound
This book is a revelation of the dense complexities of the Production Sound Team, specifically the contributions of the UST. The UST could be one of the most essential crewmembers on set. I can't imagine how a large or small-scale production could be efficient without a complete 3-person team delivering quality sound while keeping ahead of the rigorous schedules and demands. Any production without a UST would suffer from poor or under-executed sound work, and that would surely be a disservice to the filmmakers, creators and budget.Michael Minkler, 3-time Oscar winner, Emmy winner. DreamGirls, Chicago, Blackhawk Down. 11-time Oscar nominee for sound
I am amazed at the great detail and well-rounded approach you have taken. The mindset section blew me away. Joe Aredas, Jr. Hollywood Sound Union Local 695 Asst. Business Agent
Your writing has this lovely, personal, honest style to it that I just haven't seen in other industry-based literature. 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 Program participant, United Kingdom.
