Almost anyone today can pick up a camera and produce moving pictures, but achieving high-quality, professional-standard results is not so straightforward. Peter Wells shows you how to do it, providing expert instruction in the techniques required to produce professional-looking film. Illustrated throughout with examples of what to aim for and what to avoid, the books shows you how the theory and technique can be applied to specific projects, from corporate productions and movies to wedding and holiday videos. Topics covered include: equipment and accessories: purpose and correct usage; getting to know your camera and preparing to film; types of shot- distance, medium range and close-up; sound recording and lighting; planning a shoot and assessing location; scripts and storyboards; creative and special effects; and a glossary of terms.
