An Alphabetical Guide to Motion Picture, Television and Videotape Production.
Levitan, Eli L.
Those engaged in any aspect of the production of motion pictures, television program material, or videotape presentations will find in this guide facts on the materials, equipment, processes, and techniques used in production. The entries are arranged alphabetically and describe, in language which is as non-technical as possible, the processes and methods that are used to produce some of the illusory special effects, as well as those techniques which are the accepted production procedures for standard situations. Hundreds of topics are covered including animation, aspect ratios and wide screen processes, editing, exposure, filters, lenses, lighting, mattes, self-matteing processes, opticals, sound and recording, videotape, and high-speed photography, as well as film types, processes, and techniques. The text is illustrated with a great number of photographs, diagrams, and charts. A subject index arranges the entries into broad categories to assist in locating related topics. (JY)
