Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Review of previous edition:
'As production techniques become more sophisticated, maintaining continuity becomes a greater challenge. Books like this one can help. Most independent videomakers will find The Continuity Handbook very helpful. The book is both concise and detailed in its coverage of the single-camera production process, making it a good resource for both the newcomer and the intermediate videomaker'
US Videomaker magazine
Booknews
Illustrated with charts, photographs, and cartoons, this guide to film continuity covers the basics of the subject both for introductory purposes and as an on-the-job handbook. It discusses the practical, technical, and professional aspects of supervision, including out-of- sequence shooting, locations, scheduling, editing, and post- production. This fourth edition also covers recent technological changes, and includes new chapters on the crew, the script, the continuity report sheet, timing, and widescreen. No index or bibliography.
