This gutsy, vital book cuts to the core of documentary: it interrogates the place of documentary in the world and how it engages people and ideas in ways that truly matter. Moving adroitly between the histories of analog documentary and the promising landscapes of digital forms, this substantial, sage book irrefutably shows that ethics, politics, and philosophical inquiry override formats, interfaces, and technologies. Polemical yet lyrical, forceful yet inviting, this book leaves the reader exhilarated with new ways of thinking about and through documentary. The opening chapter précis could be assembled as an intellectual toolkit for all us in the act of documentary-theorists, historians, practitioners, programmers, or offered as a manifesto cracking open the most salient issues demanding our attention and action.” -- Patricia R. Zimmermann, Professor of Screen Studies, Ithaca College, USA Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9781501309175 More info

Chronicle of a camera : the Arriflex 35 in North America, 1945-1972 / Norris Pope

Call No: 233 POP Author: Pope, Norris Edition: 2013 Place: Jackson Publisher: University Press of Mississippi PhysDes: 168 pages : illustrated ; 22 cm Subject: CAMERAS; CORMAN, ROGER; EASTWOOD, CLINT; KOVACS, LASZLO; HOPPER, DENNIS; FONDA, PETER; ZSIGMOND, VILMOS; EASY RIDER (US, Dennis Hopper, 1969); BULLITT (US, Peter Yates, 1968); NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (US, George A. Romero, 1968) ISBN: 9781496814685 Donation: donated by Senses of Cinema Contents: This volume provides a history of the most consequential 35mm motion picture camera introduced in North America in the quarter century following the Second World War: the Arriflex 35. It traces the North American history of this camera from 1945 through 1972--when the first lightweight, self-blimped 35mm cameras became available.
Chronicle of a Camera emphasizes theatrical film production, documenting the Arriflex's increasingly important role in expanding the range of production choices, styles, and even content of American motion pictures in this period. The book's exploration culminates most strikingly in examples found in feature films dating from the 1960s and early 1970s, including a number of films associated with what came to be known as the "Hollywood New Wave." The author shows that the Arriflex prompted important innovation in three key areas: it greatly facilitated and encouraged location shooting; it gave cinematographers new options for intensifying visual style and content; and it stimulated low-budget and independent production. Films in which the Arriflex played an absolutely central role include Bullitt, The French Connection, and, most significantly, Easy Rider. Using an Arriflex for car-mounted shots, hand-held shots, and zoom-lens shots led to greater cinematic realism and personal expression. -- publisher's web site More info

The only natural colour process to be a commercial success before 1920 was Kinemacolor, a process invented by an Englishman, George A Smith, and exploited by an American, Charles Urban. This booklet tells the story of how Kinemacolor was developed, given its first public showing in London in 1909 and then shown in many countries in the world. Although it had its limitations, the process was successful for many years before the First World War. Some of the motion picture colour processes which superseded Kinemacolor are described. The work is based on a collection of apparatus, manuscripts, and ephemera given to the Science Museum by Charles Urban." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Reprint. First published 1969.

Edition: 4th rev. ed Place: London Publisher: Focal Press PubDate: 1975 PhysDes: 282 p. : ill. ; 23 cm Series: The library of communication techniques Subject: BUDGETING; CAMERAS; CINEMATOGRAPHY; DISTRIBUTION; DOCUMENTARIES; DOCUMENTARY FILMS; EDITING; FILMMAKING; INSURANCE, FILM; LIGHTING; LOCATION FINDING; LOCATION SHOOTING; MUSIC AND THE CINEMA; PRE-PRODUCTION; POST-PRODUCTION; PRODUCTION; PRODUCTION COSTS; SCRIPTWRITING; SOUNDTRACKS; SOUND EDITING; SOUND RECORDING Summary: "Hugh Baddeley has carried out further revisions of this book since the last edition which he enlarged by nearly forty pages. He has taken into consideration the needs of television and the text now contains interviews with well-known TV producers and key TV personnel. It deals with every aspect of documentary and factual film production. Intended for the working professional, the trainee, and the student, amateurs too will find the breadth and scope of the subject stimulating. Nowadays when the film serves not merely as a tool of entertainment, but increasingly as a tool with a variety of eminently practical jobs to do, more people than ever before become involved with film production.
Public relations officers, sales managers, television executives, those in charge of works film units, organisations using films for fund raising for charities, and members of expeditions will find here vital information. The means and methods of producing factual films are dealt with step-by-step from the initial idea to the making of release prints and their distribution. The typical problems of the "documentary" - shooting on distant and remote locations, as well as the difficulties of providing effective lighting outside the studio - are presented in practical terms. Sound recording, both under studio conditions and on location, is covered in detail. The techniques involved in laying and mixing multiple recordings to produce the final master track are described. Especially valuable are those practical suggestions that the author is able to offer from his own long personal experience. These range from budgeting and obtaining insurance cover to dealing with foreign customs." -- BOOK JACKET Notes: First ed. published 1963; Includes index ISBN: 0240509158; 0240509293 (pbk.)
