Old-school, in-camera, special FX book?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I recall a book, perhaps 50-70 years old, that had a title like: "Special Effects for Movies using Paperclips and String" Or some variation on that.

I cannot find anything remotely close to that title. It was a DIY guide on in-camera techniques and easy to create FX.

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance!!!

Thank you, Malcolm!  That is the one. Turns out it is I who is in the 50-70 year old range! And not the book. Ha!

And thanks, David, for the Fielding recommendation!   That particular one has some great information on rear screen projection which will be helpful for a student in one of my classes!
