Overview

ELECTRONIC CINEMATOGRAPHY,
Achieving Photographic Control over the Video Image

is newly back in print for the first time in years. This pioneering book was ahead of its time. This is the book that caused a new generation of filmmakers to think of creating digital cinema and video in creative and cinematic terms.

A very popular Cinema Industry reference book and college text book, this book went through several re-printings. ELECTRONIC CINEMATOGRAPHY went out of print when its original publisher left the publishing business. It, never the less, enjoyed vigorous used book sales, commanding high prices and sales volumes as a used collector's book.

ELECTRONIC CINEMATOGRAPHY, Achieving Photographic Control over the Video Image is a book that uniquely demystifies video and reveals its real creative potential. Harry Mathias, who has worked successfully in both film and digital cinema, approaches digital cinema cinematography from the point of view of the cinematographer, rather than that of the video engineer.

This book shows you how video theory can be applied to creative ends. They relate the image characteristics of video to those of film and demonstrate how those characteristics can be applied to tell dramatic visual stories.

ELECTRONIC CINEMATOGRAPHY is filled withe exciting ideas and practical knowledge that, for the first time, provide the hows and whys of realizing both the filmic and special electronic potentials of video equipment. The book requires no previous electronic experience. Included in its detailed tone reproduction in a video image... determining exposure indexes for video cameras... lighting for video... and dealing with the limitations of digital image quality.

The future demands a new analysis of the visual techniques that will be required by the improved picture quality of high-definition video and its application to dramatic cinema subjects. This book takes you toward that goal, and teaches you the necessary skills."
