A Primer for Film-Making; A Complete Guide to 16 mm and 35 mm Film Production.
Roberts, Kenneth H.; Sharples, Win, Jr.
Each way to perform a particular aspect of a film production process will have its own unique effect upon the spectator--therefore, the initial task in making a film is to understand the practical techniques and use them as a base from which to develop a personal style. The technical means by which stylistic film making can be accomplished are carefully detailed and illustrated in this guide. A chapter is devoted to an area of film making that is important to a beginner: budgets, tools of cinematography, lighting, interpreting the image, capturing the image, developing the image, the aesthetics and procedures of film editing, opticals and titles, the aesthetics of film sound, procedures for sound, and printing the image. Appended are a list of significant films, a budget outline, a glossary of American standard nomenclature for film making, and a brief bibliography. (SH)
