Clendenin, Bruce
This book provides a comprehensive step-by-step learning guide to video production. It begins with camera equipment, both still and video. It then describes how to reassemble the video and build a final product out of "video blocks," and discusses multiple-source configurations, which are required for professional level productions of live shows. It concludes with discussion of finding a market for video services. The book is divided into 11 chapters: (1) Still Cameras; (2) Video Cameras; (3) Electronics; (4) Camera Mounts; (5) VCRs and Videotape; (6) Frame Composition; (7) Lighting; (8) Audio; (9) Continuity and Editing; (10) Multiple-Source Systems; and (11) Producing.
