The act of documenting : documentary film in the 21st century / Brian Winston, Gail Vanstone and Wang Chi

Call No: 761 WIN Author: Winston, Brian; Vanstone, Gail; Chi, Wang Source: UK Place: London Publisher: Bloomsbury Academic PubDate: 2017 PhysDes: xii ; 271 pages : illustrations ; 23 cm Subject: DOCUMENTARY FILMS; FILMMAKING; AESTHETICS; EDITING; PRODUCTION; CAMERAS Summary: “Fiercely argued, urgently rendered, and rigorously researched, The Act of Documenting whacks through the ethical, political, moral, evidentiary, and argumentative acts undergirding documentary production and reception. 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

Newly revised and expanded to take the latest developments into account, Cinema in the Digital Age examines the fate of cinema in the wake of the digital revolution. Nicholas Rombes considers Festen (1998), The Blair Witch Project (1999), Timecode (2000), Russian Ark (2002), and The Ring (2002), among others. Haunted by their analogue pasts, these films are interested not in digital purity but rather in imperfection and mistakes-blurry or pixilated images, shaky camera work, and other elements that remind viewers of the human behind the camera.With a new introduction and new material, this updated edition takes a fresh look at the historical and contemporary state of digital cinema. It pays special attention to the ways in which nostalgia for the look and feel of analogue disrupts the aesthetics of the digital image, as well as how recent films such as The Social Network (2010) and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)-both shot digitally-have disguised and erased their digital foundations. The book also explores new possibilities for writing about and theorizing film, such as randomization. Notes: Includes bibliographical references.

Despite its institutional significance, its decisive impact on the dynamics of entire film industries, the aspirations of film practioners, and the content and form of the films that are produced, practice-based film education is still a neglected topic in film scholarship. The Education of the Filmmaker in Europe, Australia, and Asia is an attempt to begin to fill the lacuna in question by looking at film training programs in countries such as Lithuania, Scotland, Sweden, Australia, Japan, and others. Examining aspects of flimmaking such as environmental impact, influences on local culture, and sway over city policy, this book looks at how training of filmmakers reaches beyond the films themselves to all aspects of culture and society.

Subject: FILMMAKING; INDEPENDENT FILMMAKERS; INDEPENDENT FILMS; INDEPENDENT PRODUCTION; INDEPENDENT DIRECTORS; DIRECTORS; PRODUCERS; CRITICISM; EUROPEAN CINEMA; BRITISH CINEMA; UNITED KINGDOM; AUSTRALIA; PERU; GREECE; TURKEY; IRAQ; CHINA; AFRICA; MALAYSIA; CANADA; USA Summary: "Independent Filmmaking around the Globe calls attention to the significant changes taking place in independent cinema today, as new production and distribution technology and shifting social dynamics make it easier for independent filmmakers to produce films outside both the mainstream global film industry and their own national film systems. Identifying and analyzing the many complex forces that shape the production and distribution of feature films, the authors detail how independent filmmakers create work that reflects independent voices and challenges political, economic, and cultural constraints.
With chapters on the under-explored cinemas of Greece, Turkey, Iraq, China, Malaysia, Peru, and West Africa, as well as traditional production centres such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia, Independent Filmmaking around the Globe explores how contemporary independent filmmaking increasingly defines the global cinema of our time." -- TAKEN FROM FIRST PAGE OF BOOK Notes: Includes bibliographical references and filmography ISBN: 9781442626836 Donation: Senses of Cinema Contents: -- foreword: producing independently in global industry / David Hamilton -- ackowledgments -- 1.The Meaning of Independence: Concepts, Contexts, and Interpretations / Mary P.

He needed to find four young, untried, untested, obsessive and possibly unhinged film-makers who he could follow in their quest for fame and glory. Over six months, he met literally hundreds of film-makers from all over the world. Some were clearly talented. A few seemed certifiably insane. What united them was a passion for making movies and an inhuman determination to make their mark - whatever the cost.
King of Cannes is a riotously funny account of those six months, a rollercoaster ride through the nether regions of the movie business which culminates at Cannes, the most important - and the most glamorous - film festival in the world."-BOOK BLURB Notes: Previously published: London: Heinemann, 1999 ISBN: 0747559155 More info

How is landscape deployed in the work of such filmmakers as Greenaway, Rossellini, or Antonioni, to name just three? What are differences between the use of landscape in Western filmmaking and in the work of Middle Eastern and Asian filmmakers? How is cinematic landscape related to the idea of a national cinema and
questions of identity.
The first collection on the idea of landscape and film, this volume will present an impressive international cast of contributors, among them Jacques Aumont, Tom Conley, David B. Clarke, Marcus A.

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.)

This collection features the best of these, focusing on all the major films, from Signs of Life and Aguirre, the Wrath of God to Grizzly Man and Cave of Forgotten Dreams. When did Herzog decide to become a filmmaker? Who are his key influences? Where does he find his peculiar themes and characters? What role does music play in his films? How does he see himself in relation to the German past and in relation to film history? And how did he ever survive the wrath of Klaus Kinski? Herzog answers these and many other questions in twenty-five interviews ranging from the 1960s to the present. Critics and fans recognized Herzog's importance as a young German filmmaker early on, but his films have attained international significance over the decades. Most of the interviews collected in this volume--some of them from Herzog's production archive and previously unpublished--appear in English for the very first time. Together, they offer an unprecedented look at Herzog's work, his career, and his public persona as it has developed and changed over time." -- BACK COVER ISBN: 9781617039683 Contents: Platform for the young German film: Werner Herzog / Frieda Grafe, Enno Patalas, and Florian Fricke (1968) -- Hope for Berlin.
