Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"'Film brings a world that does not exist to life,' writes Glassbourg, a producer and college-level film/TV production instructor, in this fourth and final book in the Learn to Speak series (following entries on music, dance, and fashion). In six chapters, capably illustrated once again by Kulak's sharp, vaguely retro images, Glassbourg explores the connections between photography and filmmaking, lighting, screenplays, and who's who on a film crew, along with tips on shooting, postproduction, and distribution. Throughout, sidebars offer comments from people in the industry ('If we think of a film as a building, the script is a foundation,' says a scriptwriter/director), as well as relevant films for readers to track down. A comprehensible and encouraging intro to filmmaking, from inspiration through production. Ages 9 — 13." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

"Seen any good movies lately?" is a question almost as commonly asked as "How are you?" We all love watching movies, as much today as when film began. But with all the information and technology that's readily available, today's filmgoers know that making a movie isn't an act of magic!

By starting with the most basic formula (images + motion = film), Learn to Speak Film does away with the special effects and gets to the heart of what makes movies so much more than just something to watch on a Friday night. The lessons within these pages range from choosing a camera to writing dialogue, from handling criticism to preparing a press kit. Whether young readers just love Oscar Night or want to pursue a career as a screenwriter, set designer, or director, Learn to Speak Film will appeal to the inner film buff in all of us.
