The cinema as art / Ralph Stephenson & J. R. Debrix
Harmondsworth: Penguin, 1969.
Call No: 63 STE Author: Stephenson, Ralph; Debrix, J. R. CorpAuthor: Penguin Edition: Revised edition, reprint Place: Harmondsworth Publisher: Penguin PubDate: 1969 PhysDes: 270 p.,  p. of plates ; 18 cm Subject: AESTHETICS; ART AND THE CINEMA; ART CINEMA; EDITING; CINEMATOGRAPHY; SOUND; COSTUMES; MAKE-UP; COLORIZATION; LIGHTING Summary: “The cinema as art”, to those brought up on the “movie show and bubblegum” image, must look like a pretentious contradiction in terms. As this book demonstrates, however, the cinema stands for an art form which is almost unique in immediacy and scope. The authors explain, with over 300 examples taken from films of every country and period, the stages by which a director isolates what is mentally and emotionally significant in a situation. The reader is shown, from the inside, how the director may achieve this end by exploiting any or all of the cinematic techniques from script-planning to final editing, from camera movement to costume from sound to soft-focus.

But is truth or reality readily available, easily acquired, or undisputed? Or do documentaries convey illusions of reality? What aesthetic means are used to build these illusions?
Crafting truth illuminates the way these films tell their stories; how they use the camera, editing, sound, and performance; what rhetorical devices they employ; and what the theoretical, practical, and ethical implications of those choices are. Complex documentary concepts are presented through easily accessible language, images, and a discussion of a wide range of films and videos to encourage new ways of thinking about and seeing nonfiction cinema.

In the past two decades a whole new generation of cinematographers has emerged on the international film scene. Often using spare and original lighting and camera techniques that would have horrified oldtime Hollywood, directors of photography have made a public mark on the film-making process that was all but un-thinkable in earler years. No other volume of in-depth conversations with the generation of cinematographers is available to students and moviegoers. These interviews are rich in practical detail as well as stimulating discussions of aesthetic issues. Thus, reading this book is like taking a class from fifteen top cameramen. Taken together, the conversations in this book reveal the remarkable range of creativity and dedication demanded of the visual artist in feature filmmaking today." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index ISBN: 0520053362 Donation: donated by the family of Wayne Levy, 2006 Contents: -- introduction -- Nestor Almendros -- John Alonzo -- John Bailey -- Bill Butler -- Michael Chapman -- Bill Draker -- Conrad Hall -- Laszlo Kovacs -- Owen Roizman -- Vittorio Storaro -- Mario Tosi -- Haskell Wexler -- Billy Williams -- Gordon Willis -- Vilmos Zsigmond -- glossary -- index -- More info

Call No: 761 BAD Author: Baddeley, Hugh W. 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.)
