Product description

"Mastering Movie Mode" is a comprehensive guide to the research, planning and pre-production processes necessary before creating a movie. It asks the fundamental question: "What are you trying to say with the film?" From assembling your team to obtaining all the equipment you'll need, the book gives expert advice on camera settings, shutter speeds, lenses, filters, audio considerations and lighting requirements. Practical information is given on how to shoot standard and wide-angle shots, panning techniques, how to capture action with the use of dollies and other motion aids, and how to make sure your sequences are crisply in focus. Post-production hardware, software and techniques are discussed, including importing files, reviewing footage, synching audio, colour grading, rendering and exporting.
