I have bought a number of books on the art of film making, most are jumbled and incomplete in their advice. Mr Arijon's book is superb, in most areas he profers the reader with a myriad of filming techniques accompanied with good clear diagrams.
This is the only book I have read that offers clear intricate diagrams that actually help you stage shots, both simple and difficult.
The advice is clear and useful. My advice for the amateur and seasoned filmaker is to have a copy of this book on your shelf along with "setting up your shots" by Jeremy Vinyard. This demonstrates camera moves which are also very important and useful to underrstanding the art of directing and editing.I am not an easy person to please. So get yourself a copy of this book and Go make a film!
The book is technical and complex, and unless you are planning an epic, or have to tell a complicated story from multi changing camera angles I wouldn't bother.
If you are serious about the craft of camera work, and I mean serious, then get a copy for your shelf.
O'h one word of warning, the illustration are a bit non PC and outrageous at times. You would't get them published if you wrote the book today(this book was published 1st in 1976), but don't let that put you off too much.
