  1. I am curious what the status is on the next AC Manual edition (Previous one written by Michael Goi). I would like to purhcase the book butI’m just wondering if I do so, if the next one is going to be coming out soon if I should just wait it out and buy the new one? Thank you!
  2. I am obsessed with books, I can read all day. I am looking to improve my directing in terms of: directing talent, shot composition, etiquette with major crew members, and script analyzation. I know most of these are picked up by doing, but are there any books that you recommend that cover any of these topics? I've already read : The Filmmaker's intuition, directing shot by shot, and The Hero With a Thousand Faces. Thank you!
  3. I'm looking for some books that are common in film schools, or that are very good beginner level books to kind of get a jumpstart on my studies. Any suggestions? I've heard that Cinematography by Blain Brown and also Motion Picture and Video Lighting, Is that true?
  4. I want to dive more into narrative books again. I've always been a very audiovisual person, when it comes to perceiving and consuming storys. So I'd like to come back to the written storys, after heaving read so many non-fictional books about lighting, photography and cinematography. Can you give me some recommendations? I know it's rather subjective. But I thought, I'd meet some like-minded people, since we are all filmmakers and visual storytellers. Maybe I can give you a little help with my favourite films and directors, that I enjoy watching: - Kitano, Fincher, Tarantino, Danny Bolye, the Coen brothers, W. Allen, Gus van Sant, Luc Besson, Spike Jonze, - nearly all of the Studio Ghibli movies and some classic anime feature films like Ghost in the Shell, - Se7en, Lost in Translation and Good Will Hunting are some of my favourite films I can watch over and over again.
  5. hey guys, do you know any book on film theory and criticism you read and you personally suggest? I’d be more than interested in a few titles! thank you :) Stefano
  6. Hello everyone! Sorry for reposting this, but the first time I did it for some reason there was no title. Alas! So, I love reading books about film, media, art and the motion picture industry in general. I'm looking for recommendations on new reading material for the future. So, if you have a favorite book or know of any essentials that I should read, let me know! I'm sure there are dozens of authors and countless pieces of work that would be valuable and pertinent to my attempts in always trying to further educate myself as a filmmaker. Books I've read that I really enjoyed include: Final Cut - Steven Bach Poetics of Cinema - David Bordwell The Way Hollywood Tells It - David Bordwell On Directing Film - David Mamet Ways of Seeing - John Berger and my personal favorite... Devotional Cinema - Nathaniel Dorsky All of these books gave me great insight into many different aspects concerning motion picture production and flim/media theory. In ways these books changed the enitre way I perceive reality and the world, and how closely this coincides with filmmaking. In many ways they're synonymous. Motion pictures are merely captured moments of the whole experience. But yes, I would greatly appreciate any and all recommendations. I'm always eager to be turned on to something new, thought-provoking and/or technically beneficial. I also recently ordered the ASC Manual 10th Edition. I thought it was about time I finally got it. So if you were going to suggest that, maybe think of another one. Please? Awesome! Well.... Thank you and good morrow!
  7. I've been studying all my weakest points when it comes to cinematography. Im trying to make it all stick subconsciously, or at least most of it. By far, my weakest point is lighting. I've watched Shane Hurlbuts "Illumination Experience" videos, but thats not enough for me. I need to start with the basics. I want and need to know why and how to light a certain scene. Like some sort of blueprint to start with and venture off from eventually as I learn more. Does anybody have some suggestions on books I should pick up, articles to read, or videos I should watch? I actually have a degree in Digital Cinematography but I didn't learn nearly as much as I needed to. I know there are a lot of professionals here who can point me in the right direction. This forum as been gold! Thanks in advance.
  8. For sale: Handbook for Super 8 Production has a cracked spine with a some loose pages but it seems to be all there. Super 8 Sound catalog is in good condition. $12.00 USD for both plus shipping.
  9. Lenses and the proper ones to use for certain scenes completely baffles my mind, can someone suggest a book that i could read to better understand the functions of each lense.?
