Everything You Need to Know to Become a Film-Industry Insider

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between a gaffer and a grip? Or what makes the best boy so great? In Strike the Baby and Kill the Blonde,* Dave Knox, a top camera operator and longtime veteran of the film industry, gives you the inside story on the lingo and slang heard on the set. This is an A-to-Z guide to making a movie: the equipment, the crew, and the sometimes hilarious terminology—everything you need to know to sound like a seasoned pro.

* Remove the small spotlight from the set and switch off the two-kilowatt quartz light.

Synopsis:

A thorough dictionary of movie-making terminology encompasses more than five hundred entries, including slang, phrases, and other terms, along with definitions, all alphabetically organized for easy access, and features personal anecdotes, insider examples, and witty narrative. Original. 15,000 first printing.

Synopsis:

Dave Knox has twenty years of experience in film production, including work on major motion pictures such as The Silence of the Lambs, Big Daddy, Scent of a Woman, The Age of Innocence, Hitch, and many more. He lives in New York with his wife and children.
