Behind the Camera.
Kuhns, William; Giardino, Thomas F.
Intended for the beginning filmmaker, this book presents basic information on major aspects of shooting a film. It covers characteristics of various cameras, films, lenses, and lighting equipment and tells how to use them. The importance of a shooting script is stressed. The mechanics of sound systems, editing, and titles, animations, and special effects are explained. A major part of the book concerns the making of a student film, "Sparrow." The filmmakers' diary of this film, from conception through production, is presented. Then three film teachers criticize the film, shot by shot, to point up the flaws in it. Photographs illustrate the text. (JK)
