Top Customer Reviews

By A Customer on 15 Oct. 1997
Format: Hardcover
Compiled from years of teaching innumerable students at the International Film & Television Workshops in Rockport, ME, this book supercedes all previous texts on the subject. A former President of East Coast Camera Local 644, Hart writes in a manner as readable as it is thorough. Illustrations and appendices are completely useful. This is the new Bible for the working A.C. and anyone seeking to understand how the camera department really functions.

HASH(0x954dec0c) out of 5 stars Great starter book for AC's 12 Jun. 2006
By BA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Of the two major "textbooks" on ACing, this is the best one to start with. It gives enough information to initiate you into what is expected of all members of the camera crew, but is not overwhelming with technical info (not that you are not going to want that info someday, but if you are new, it can be confusing and even discouraging.) After this book, get David Elkin's Camera Assistant's Manual, which goes into much further detail. As you work with different cameras, download the manuals from the panavision/arri/aaton/etc websites so you can feel comfortable with the differences in individual cameras. Lastly, get a used copy of the very expensive American Cinematographer Manual for all the technical bits in one handy portable reference book. This, and tons of set experience, is probably all you need (and keep in mind some of the greatest cinematographers who ever lived worked without any of these aids). Rely on your eye!

HASH(0x9675494c) out of 5 stars A little dated, but still a useful read. 5 Jan. 2016
By John - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Covers a lot about working as a camera assistant but the book is rather dated and focuses almost solely on film cameras.

HASH(0x954debe8) out of 5 stars The Camera Assistant - A Complete Pro Handbook (Hart) 17 Aug. 2000
By John A H Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is probably the best handbook for this discipline I've ever seen. I bought a copy when I was in the States three years ago - and it was swiped ! I plan to prescribe this book for my students from 2001 onwards. Well done !
