This book provides readers with a teaching tool not currently available. It fills a gap in the literature by going beyond simple discussions of hardware usage, basic technical knowledge, and descriptions of technique to in-depth discussions of how this knowledge can be applied in a coherent approach to production.
A text for film, video, and television production students, designed to supplement technical instruction. Discusses production techniques for interpreting scenes, subjects, and themes, covering visualization; point of view; story structures; mood; characterization; mise en scene and design; editing and lighting; and symbols. Includes appendices on electricity and measuring light, plus b&w photos. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
