Fell, John L.
"Understanding Film," the opening section of this book, discusses perceptions of and responses to film and the way in which experiences with and knowledge of other media affect film viewing. The second section, "Film Elements," analyzes the basic elements of film: the use of space and time, the impact of editing, sound and color, and the effects achieved by various points of view: The third section, "How Films Are Made," considers film-making and production in their various stages. Film theory and approaches to film criticism are reviewed in the fourth section, which includes an overview of major theorists, auteur criticism, and structuralism and semiology. A concluding section considers future trends for narrative film in terms of both technique and distribution. The appendixes list film reference publications, film periodicals, colleges and universities with film programs, and film distributors. (LL)
