Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Television Production offers you a very practical guide to professional TV and video production techniques. You will find straightforward description and explanations of the equipment you will use, and discover the best ways to use it. You will also learn how to anticipate and quickly overcome typical everyday problems.

You will explore in detail all the major features of television production, learning the secrets of top-grade camerawork, persuasive lighting techniques, effective sound treatment, as well as the subtle processes of scenic design and the art of video editing.

Successful program-making is about communication and persuasion. It is not merely a matter of knowing which buttons to press, but how to influence and persuade your audience, hold their attention, develop their interest, and arouse their emotions. This book tells you how to do all this - and much more.

The fourteenth edition has been completely revamped:

* New: Coauthor Jim Owens brings his wealth of teaching and international broadcasting experience

* New: In brilliant full color for the first time, hundreds of new photos and illustrations demonstrate the techniques presented in the book

* New: Thoroughly overhauled with the latest developments in tools and technology

* New: Focus on the latest equipment, delivery methods, and convergence of digital technology

* Everything you need to know about the tools and techniques of television production * Doesn't just tell you how to use equipment, but also why and when: a big-picture approach to help you succeed on any type of shoot, regardless of the equipment * In brilliant full color for the first time, hundreds of new photos and illustrations demonstrate the techniques presented in the book "Television Production had been something of a 'technical bible' for television producers all over the world since it was first published in 1961 and is now, amazingly, in its 13th edition. It has been splendidly updated to include present day digital production techniques."

Reviews of previous editions:

"This very comprehensive book is possibly the best overview of technical television"

US customer review from Amazon.com website

"For the student seeking hard experience in studio operational practice it really is impossible to better Gerald Millerson's basic text, The Technique of Television Production"

Television - Journal of the Royal Television Society

"This superb manual ... is concentrated and comprehensive, but well-written, outstandingly illustrated, and supplied with plenty of white space. The 23 chapters go into satisfying depth on theoretical, technical, practical and creative aspects, and there is a thorough glossary, reading list and index.".

British Journal of Educational Technology

'Television Production's newly-unveiled 13th edition successfully lives up to the high standards set by its predecessors.'

VIDEO CAMERA

'...an invaluable insight into professional TV and video techniques. And with a price tag of £24, it's an absolute steal. Simply irresistible.'
