Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

DIGITAL MOVIEMAKING guides students of any level through the technical and aesthetic aspects of moviemaking by highlighting the decisions that are made throughout the creative process as well as the strategies filmmakers develop to bring their vision to life. Throughout the text, author Lynn S. Gross emphasizes the directorial and storytelling functions of narrative film and beyond?from the forethought and care required for each facet of production to the technical information that anyone engaged in making movies should know. This edition reflects the rapidly-evolving nature of digital cinema, with new information on cutting-edge equipment, techniques, and formats that places students at the forefront of moviemaking today.

Synopsis:

DIGITAL MOVIEMAKING is designed for the Film/Video Production course that combines the planning and aesthetic techniques of film with the economics and conveniences of video. Courses cover the procedures needed for undertaking moviemaking, primarily that of a narrative nature. This course is taken by radio-TV-film majors who are interested in careers that involve making movies.

Synopsis:

Interested in digital moviemaking and want to focus on the directorial and storytelling functions of the media? DIGITAL MOVIEMAKING underscores the creative process--the kinds of decisions that are made and the strategies that are developed. Further, Gross and Ward stress the forethought and care that must go into all aspects of production, including the technical information that anyone engaged in production in this area should know. While concentrating on the narrative moving picture, many of the principles discussed are useful for other forms, such as documentaries, commercials, and music videos.
