Review quote

"This book isn't really here to be a how to guide but rather a look into the world of the people behind the camera and what all goes into the choices they make on a daily basis. There is plenty to learn from what they say but if you're looking for someone to tell you what to do you are reading the wrong book. The best thing that this book teaches is that each and every film you may work on is going to be different and you will have to adjust to fit the needs of the story being told. If you aren't a filmmaker then you will be taught to be more attentive to what the film is showing you and why. It's not just about pointing the camera at actors and calling it a day. This volume shows us once again that the FilmCraft series is a great buy for those making films as well as those who just want to know more about how their favorite movies are made."--Digital Hippos "I'm pretty much in love with this series, and am now hotly anticipating the next two books: Costume Design and Directing. If you're someone who loves films, then I'm betting you'll also fall for these gorgeous titles. If bookstores still exist by the time you read this, get down to one and browse these books and tell me you don't covet them." "I m a firm believer in the philosophy that says the more you know about something, the more fun it is. And, since I m (obviously) a die-hard film fan, I m always trying to add to my knowledge of movies - and yours too, if I can help it. In that vein, I d like to recommend an excellent new pair of books that examine the process of crafting films - in fact, the book series is called "Filmcraft," and the first two volumes are Cinematography by Mike Goodridge and Tim Grierson, and Editing by Justin Chang. (Focal Press, $29.95 each). Those are two apt choices, because though the concepts are simple - essentially, cinematography is how you shoot a film and editing is how you puts those shots together - the actual processes are quite complicated.
