Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

VISUAL STORYTELLING: VIDEOGRAPHY AND POST PRODUCTION IN THE DIGITAL AGE combines a thorough exploration of essential storytelling concepts with detailed instruction in practical technical skills. Without limiting its focus to a particular range of equipment, applications, or technology, this engaging text covers the key concepts, aesthetics, and techniques of single-camera field production and post production. It includes an abundance of unique images, useful learning tools, and real-life stories and suggestions from working experts. The accompanying DVD illustrates and expands on text concepts, with relevant video and audio footage for editing exercises.

Book News Annotation:

This guide explains video production by focusing on the aesthetics, concepts, and techniques of visual storytelling rather than a specific technology. Osgood (media production, Indiana U.) and Hinshaw (media arts and design, James Madison U.) review the fundamental concepts of field production and post-production. They outline the pre-production process and story structure; legal and ethical issues; shooting, lighting, audio, and composition; and post-production: editing, soundtracks, graphics and effects, and output. A DVD accompanies the book and parallels its structure; it contains interactive modules and demos and clips for editing exercises. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
