The Filmmaker's Eye
By Gustavo Mercado
This is the only book that combines conceptual and practical instruction on creating polished and eloquent images for film and video with the technical know-how to achieve them.
Loaded with hundreds of full-color examples, ";The Filmmaker's Eye"; is a focused, easy-to-reference guide that shows you how to become a strong visual storyteller through smart, effective choices for your shots.
After a short introduction to basic principles, a variety of shots are deconstructed in the following format:
- Why It Works: an introduction to a particular type of shot
- How It Works: callouts point out exactly how the shot works the way it does--the visual rules and technical aspects in action
- Technical Considerations: the equipment and techniques needed to get the shot.
- Breaking the Rules: examples where the ";rules"; are brilliant subverted
