Valuable Tool for Directors AND Cinematographers, 14 July 2011
It's just not enough to shoot a scene and say you did this way "because it just felt right." It is essential to great filmmaking to know WHY the shot works, WHEN to use it and WHAT impact it is going to have on the arc of the story. Van Sijll's book, CINEMATIC STORYTELLING is a must read for directors and cinematographers. The volume is a clear, concise and fabulous tool with great shot by shot explanations, including examples from the most important films. Buy this book.
