Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

Regarding camera work, audio, and lighting, I’d like to thank Ken Santucci and Frank Grimaldi for their tech reads and suggestions. I couldn’t have written the chapters on closed captions without the gracious help of Cynthia M. King, Ph.D., executive director, academic technology of Gallaudet University, and Andrew Kirkpatrick, project manager, WGBH National Center for Accessible Media.

Tom Smith, the sponsor for the seminars I teach for the University of Wisconsin, contributed many ideas on how this book could better serve university professors, engineers, and other professionals. I appreciate the feedback and ideas from the many professors and other university and governmental personnel who have attended these seminars over the years.

I owe a debt of gratitude to those who helped create this book, especially Stephen Nathans, my editor and running coach; Kinley Levack, my eagle-eyed copy editor; and Anna McBrayer, who designed the book and cover and typeset the book. Special thanks to Walt Fuller from St. Barthélemy Press, for his sage advice and counsel, and to Tom Campbell, from King Printing, who helped make the entire process seem easy.

Special thanks to Adobe, Apple Computer, Beachtek, Dell Computer, Epson, Hewlett-Packard, Innoventive Software, Media Access Group, Microsoft, Pinnacle Systems, Serious Magic, Shure, Sonic Solutions, Sony, Sorenson Media, Ulead Systems, Verbatim, and the WGBH Educational Foundation, who all supplied hardware or software for this book.

Thanks to the local folks from the Legacy of Mountain Music Association (LOMMA) for providing a fertile playground for experimenting with microphones and shooting techniques, and to Dr. Don T. Sumie for allowing me to use his interview in this book.

Finally, many thanks to Regina Kwon for marketing assistance and to Pat Tracy for technical and other assistance.
