Overview

With the advent of digital video and desktop editing software, scores of independent producers have found themselves equipped to make their own movies. Because filmmaking involves much more than just buying a camera and a computer, there’s The Digital Filmmaking Handbook. This one-stop digital filmmaking resource guides aspiring filmmakers from initial conception to getting a finished project "in the can." From writing and preproduction planning to shooting and post-production editing and effects, this book will serve as the single-volume film school. Completely updated and revised, this third edition includes thorough information on a number of important new DV technologies including HDV, a very affordable new standard that lets even low-budget producers work in high-definition video.The expanded lighting and shooting chapters include new technical information as well as a wealth of new theory. New exercises offer help with everything from writing to special effects, while all of the chapters have been revised to cover the very latest hardware, software, and production workflows. This book will help filmmakers understand the questions to ask so that they can better prepare for and solve the myriad problems throughout the production process. The companion DVD includes project files, film clips, support material for tutorials in the book, and additional video tutorials and essays. FEATURES
* Provides completely updated coverage of digital technology, software, and techniques
* Teaches digital filmmaking from start to finish-storyboarding and budgeting, to casting, shooting, and finishing
* Details the best hardware and software tools to use
* Details new output methods, including coverage of DVD authoring
* Includes a companion DVD with project files, film clips, and all support material for tutorials in the book. Also includes additional video tutorials and essays

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
This is one serious guide to digital filmmaking. It brings together virtually all the knowledge and skills you’d need to make a full-fledged indie video. And if your aspirations are less lofty (say you’re creating a training film or trade show presentation), well -- piece of cake.

This new Second Edition hasn’t just been thoroughly updated; it’s also been reorganized to closely reflect professional workflow. Ben Long and Sonja Schenk cover it all: DV technology fundamentals, choosing DV cameras, writing, planning, scheduling, lighting, shooting, sound, post-production workstations, editing, color correction, titling, compositing, output, and a whole lot more.

Never written a script? The authors explain everything from classic Hollywood three-act structure to screenplay formatting and script breakdowns. Never shot anything more than a kid’s birthday party? Read this book and learn the fundamentals of production design, effects planning, camera angles, shot coverage, and composition. Never prepared footage for editing? The authors walk you through logging, timecodes, numbering, adjusting audio levels, even figuring out where that annoying hum is coming from.

You’ll find loads of tutorials, step-by-step checklists, and exercises. You’ll also find an entire DVD full of goodies, including demo versions of Adobe Premiere, After Effects and Photoshop for Windows and Mac, 1.5 GB of media and project files, and 100-plus pages of extra content, covering essentials like budgeting, financing, and pitching your story. This is DV complete: just add talent. Bill Camarda

Bill Camarda is a consultant, writer, and web/multimedia content developer. His 15 books include Special Edition Using Word 2000 and Upgrading & Fixing Networks For Dummies®, Second Edition.

From The Critics
Explains how to shoot a movie on digital video and edit it on a computer. Storyboarding, lighting, sound, and software options are discussed. The second edition adds a tutorial that walks through the editing of an entire scene, and moves the chapter on financing to the DVD. The DVD contains demonstration versions of Adobe Premiere, After Effects, and Photoshop for Macintosh and Windows. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
