Documentary films produced for television, DVD, and movie theater distribution far outnumber movies made in all other genres, which makes documentary filmmaking a wise choice for students pursuing careers in the cinematic arts. This illustration-filled book offers a self-teaching course in making documentaries, beginning with important advice on how to recognize, define, and research a theme that will ultimately become a movie's subject. Lessons that follow describe the equipment that filmmakers must either own or rent for shooting and editing, explain the journalistic and production processes required for identifying locations and interviewing subjects, and review the cinematic and editing skills that budding filmmakers must master. " The Documentary Moviemaking Course " covers all practical filmmaking details, including--
  • Equipment and format
  • Funding and budgeting
  • Pre-production
  • Shooting
  • Editing and post-production
  • Publicity and Distribution
    The enlightening and instructive text is supplemented with more than 350 illustrations.
