Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A gaffer is the chief electrician on a movie set, and this book contains interviews with gaffers and cinematographers who know their business, including Conrad Hall, James Wong Howe, Haskell Wexler, Robert Wise, and Vilmos Zsigmond, among others. The book is divided into cinematography, lighting equipment, image manipulation, and studio and location lighting. Teamwork and artistry are accented. The comments are informal yet knowledgeable, and there is a glossary to help the reader. Admittedly specialized, Film Lighting will be of interest to movie buffs and film students, as well as subject specialists. Photographs and line drawings not seen. James L. Limbacher, Jayell Enterprises, Dearborn, Mich.
