Description
Shooting Movies without Shooting Yourself in the Foot is the book for all those film enthusiasts who can't get on a professional set or can't undertake studies at an expensive film school. The book approaches the subject of cinematography from a "hands-on, in the trenches" viewpoint, as though the reader were an apprentice on the set. It's a book about learning to shoot a film without making an idiot of yourself and wasting lots of time and money. It's a book about how to take artistic inspiration and make it a reality. Young filmmakers want to learn how to make better films, and they want easy-to-read books that show them how it's really done, told by seasoned experts. Shooting Movies does that. Its combination breezy writing style mixed with practical, interactive exercises geared for both film and video give filmmakers the experience they need to move to the next level. Beginning with fundamental techniques and concepts of cinematography, the author shares his many years of experience with the reader, imparting invaluable advice and guidance on how to avoid common pitfalls, and more importantly, learn from mistakes. Cinematography is broken out into two key aspects: composition and lighting. Each is dealt with separately and incrementally -the author builds upon topics presented early in the book, and progresses to cover more and more advanced techniques, always keeping an eye on what a filmmaker needs to know how to do at every moment.
