AUSTRALIA; WAR ON TV; BURROWES, GEOFF; DIXON, JOHN; MILLER, GEORGE; ANZACS [TV] (AT, Pino Amenta, John Dixon & George Miller, 1985) Summary: "They were the tallest soldiers of any army; the only all-volunteer fighting force and the best paid of all the troops in the Great War. Yet in 1914 when they marched away, they were considered a rag-tag lot, probably too ill-disciplined to be useful in war. The proud but tragic fiasco of Gallipoli changed that perception [...] Now the Great War is the backdrop of ANZACS, one of the most dramatic and important series ever made for Australian television. In five parts the ANZACS brings to life forgotten aspects of an immense conflict, and the men - and women too - who were swept up or overtaken by it. Here, vividly illustrated in text and in pictures, is an account of how that series was made; the powerful and moving stories told; the stars who portray the dignity, bravery and poignancy of yesterday's heroes."--BOOK BLURB Notes: "The major 9 network television series (produced by Geoff Burrowes and John Dixon)'--Cover ISBN: 000636893X Donation: donated by the family of Wayne Levy, 2006 More info

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.)
