About the Book:

One of the best just got better! Since its release in 2009, Master Shots has rocketed to the top of the charts as one of the finest books on filmmaking. In this revised and expanded second edition, every image has been digitally remastered for clarity and additional text has been written as a direct response to feedback from readers of the first edition.

Master Shots by Christopher Kenworthy gives you everything you need to execute complex, original shots on any movie budget. It will teach you a way of seeing, so you'll be able to create knock-out shots, even when you're on the set and under pressure.

Most low-budget movies look low-budget, because the director is forced to compromise. By using powerful master shots and well-executed moves, you can develop a strong style and stand-out from the crowd. Use the secrets of the master directors to give your film the look and feel of a multi-million-dollar movie. The set-ups, moves and methods of the great directors are there for the taking. Now start shooting!
