The Work of the Science Film Maker.
Strasser, Alex
While science films can differ widely in their content and purpose, the making of such films rests on a pattern of principles, techniques, and matters of routine. This book traces that pattern and presents descriptions of how some particular problems were tackled previously. The history and state of the medium are overviewed, with information on its range, conceiving a film, scripting and editing, the image, and sound. The subject of science in relation to films is examined, and special filmmaking techniques are detailed. The conception and making of several science films are presented in some detail; filmmaking procedures and audiovisual aids are also discussed. Additional supplementary information is appended, and a glossary of film terms is also included. (SH)
