Bill Goetz, September 4, 2011 (view all comments by Bill Goetz)
This was one of the key textbooks I read when I was in film school. It was first published in 1965, but still in print because it is so relevant. The Five Cs are camera angles, cutting, composition, close-ups and continuity. They are the grammar of visual storytelling starting back in the era of black-and-white film through videotape to today’s digital imagery. Mascelli explains how each”C” functions in achieving effective moving imagery. His observations do include rules on what is and is not acceptable. But if read and the concepts judiciously applied to filming assignments, this book will help aspiring filmmakers and TV and internet videojournalists figure out on their own when and why rules can be broken..
