The Technique of Television Production. Revised Edition.
Millerson, Gerald
In discussing the technical aspects of television production, this book covers both equipment and techniques used in these areas: camera, lighting, sound, settings, and make-up. Composition of images according to camera movement, placement of subjects, editing, and aural composition are also covered. Steps in the technical planning of a telecast such as camera positions, sound pick-up arrangements, lighting, rehearsal procedures, cueing systems, and prompting are discussed. The book emphasizes that the appeal of television lies in its immediacy and intimacy, and so, for production techniques to capitalize on these aspects of the medium, production treatments involving sound and visual images must be fully thought out. Visual and aural effects, along with the conventions and innovations which produce them, are fully described. There is also a special section on color television production. The discussions are fairly technical. Small diagrams and illustrations augment the text. (JK)
