About the Book:

Film Production is a long established and authoritative textbook on the techniques and processes of filmmaking from script to screen. It provides an easy to follow technical introduction to the subject, demystifying the processes and explaining terms for the beginner. It deals with the 'technology of expression' showing how technology enables the concept of cinematic language or grammar. By mastering the various technical aspects of filmmaking, the potential for effective, evocative, meaningful and significant cinematic expression becomes increasingly possible.

A broad understanding of the entire process of filmmaking will benefit even the specialist. Film Production begins with an examination of film stock and exposure, and then goes on to a study of the camera, its operation and the procedure for shooting. The book then looks at editing, camera movement, composition and lighting explaining both the technology and creative uses. Each chapter refers to the most widely used techniques and treats filmmaking as a practical art. This is a book that every new entrant to the film industry should read.

What people say:

"A superior guide to all the basic aspects of film technique. Clearly written and intelligently illustrated, the book covers everything the novice or even the experienced film maker needs to know about the practicalities of film making." — American Film Quarterly
