The Technique of Documentary Film Production. Revised Edition.
Baddeley, W. Hugh
The means and methods of producing factual films are dealt with step-by-step from the initial idea to making and distributing the final release prints. The author describes preparing a script; breaking the script down to shooting sequences; budgeting for everything from materials to insurance; preliminary planning for actors, commentators, costumes, sets, etc.; choosing camera equipment and film; and shooting both in a studio setting and on location overseas. He provides solutions to the problems of lighting on location and covers in detail sound recording techniques both under studio conditions and on location. The techniques involved in laying and mixing multiple recordings to produce the final master sound track are described. Working with prints from the first "answer" print to the final release version is explained, giving techniques for preparing 35 mm. and 16 mm. color prints and 8 mm. sound prints. Artwork, animation, and editing are discussed in detail. The final step in documentary film production--distribution to schools, television, or theaters--is described in the concluding chapter. A glossary is provided. (JY)
