Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Organized in chronological order, these ideas show the development of film through the industrys innovative concepts, technologies, techniques, and movements. The illustrated pages offer an alternative history of cinematography that reviews the 120 years of ideas that have marked its evolution. Many of these ideas were conceived to resolve technical and commercial problems, while others looked to enlarge aesthetic and dramatic parameters. From the first silent films to the more recent blockbusters and everything in between, this book identifies the key theories, techniques, and strategies that made it possible for film to progress from being a mere attraction to becoming an institution.
