The most comprehensive book on the market, SIGHT SOUND MOTION: APPLIED MEDIA AESTHETICS describes the major aesthetic image elements--light and color, space, time-motion, and sound--and how they are used in television and film. Zettl's comprehensive coverage of aesthetic theory and how that theory can be successfully applied place this text in a class by itself. The Sixth Edition is richly illustrated with visuals that often draw on traditional art forms, such as painting, sculpture, and dance.
