“Wow! This is amazing!”
A/V A-Z: An Encyclopedic Dictionary of Media, Entertainment and Other Audiovisual Terms
The largest Hollywords® dictionary ever produced, defining over 10,000 words and phrases covering the full lifecycle of an audiovisual work from content creation (development, production, and post-production) to final delivery (distribution, exhibition, and broadcast) across all content forms and media (motion pictures, television, home entertainment, Internet, and multimedia).
As a dictionary, A/V A to Z is unique. Traditional dictionaries are primarily concerned with the general definition of a word. A/V A to Z goes beyond this by discussing the language of the industry. Nearly 2,000 of its entries provide encyclopedic information about the term: its origins, key stages in its development, people associated with it, its impact on the industry, illustrative examples, and so on—making the term relevant, meaningful, and functional. More than 600 storyboards, production stills, posters, equipment photos, technical diagrams, and historical images illustrate key terms.
