Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the only book that combines conceptual and practical instruction on creating polished and eloquent images for film and video with the technical know-how to achieve them.

Loaded with hundreds of full-color examples, "The Filmmaker's Eye" is a focused, easy-to-reference guide that shows you how to become a strong visual storyteller through smart, effective choices for your shots. This book has struck a chord worldwide and is being translated into several languages

After a short introduction to basic principles, a variety of shots are deconstructed in the following format:

- Why It Works: an introduction to a particular type of shot

- How It Works: callouts point out exactly how the shot works the way it does--the visual rules and technical aspects in action

- Technical Considerations: the equipment and techniques needed to get the shot.

- Breaking the Rules: examples where the "rules" are brilliant subverted

* Make smart visual choices with this quick, focused, and visual guide to cinematic composition.

* Shows you how to master the rules, then break them.

* Includes examples and discussions from a range of international films.
