Book News Annotation:

In this fifth edition of the formerly titled Electronic Moviemaking, updated to emphasize the importance of digital technologies, Gross and Ward, both of California State University, have reorganized material to more closely resemble the overlap of pre- and postproduction functions in digital moviemaking, and have added new chapters on directing and on distribution and exhibition. B&w photos and film stills are included. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

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.
