Wonderful book for training you filmic eye.
on 29 July 2017
Cannot recommend this book highly enough. I teach basic film making and I recommend it, and have lent it to many of my students. Clear, well recognisable examples of filming techniques and shot types, essential for training a film makers eye. As well as showing many examples of compositional tools, I also appreciated the examples at the end of each shot, where a film maker has made an artistic choice to subvert the "rules" and why this was effective. There really are no rules, only guidelines, but by gaining an appreciation of the conventions, you can then make artistic choices as to how you use them. Highly recommended.
