Overview


THE DIGITAL FILMMAKING HANDBOOK, FOURTH EDITION is a comprehensive digital filmmaking resource for everyone--from beginners to professionals. This book guides you through the modern digital filmmaking workflow from initial concept to finished project and shows you all the tools that will make the process run smoothly and easily. Organized into three parts, just like a film shoot, the book covers preproduction, production, and postproduction. In the preproduction section, you'll go through the decisions necessary to start shooting: writing, technology basics, planning, scheduling, storyboarding, set design, and choosing a camera. Production covers the principal shoot of your project: lighting, using the camera, shooting, and recording production sound. And postproduction wraps up with workstations and equipment, organizing and media management, editing, sound design, color correction, titles, special effects, and delivery of the finished product. Completely revised to cover all the latest digital video technology and innovations, this fourth edition includes information on HD video, shooting with digital SLR cameras, workflows for tapeless recording, and much more. THE DIGITAL FILMMAKING HANDBOOK, FOURTH EDITION will help you navigate the ever-changing developments of new filmmaking technology while keeping the big picture in mind: storytelling.
