Film world : a guide to cinema / by Ivor Montagu
Harmondsworth, England: Penguin Books, 1964.
Call No: 62 MON Author: Montagu, Ivor Goldsmid Samuel, 1904 Source: US Place: Harmondsworth, England Publisher: Penguin Books PubDate: 1964 PhysDes: 327 pages : illustrations ; 18 cm Subject: AESTHETICS; ART CINEMA; BUDGETING; CINEMATOGRAPHY; EDITING; INDUSTRY, FILM; REALISM IN FILMS; PRODUCTION COSTS; SCIENCE AND THE CINEMA; SOUND; SPECIAL EFFECTS; EISENSTEIN, SERGEI M. Summary: "At a moment when the cinema is struggling to escape from both the Hollywood blockbuster and the art form, FILM WORLD is a reminder of the true nature of cinema itself. In a personal survey of astonishing range and uncommon perception of Ivor Montagu shows us the facts of the film as art form, as undustry, and as a means of social communication. The four parts of the book - Film as Science, Film as Art, Film as Commodity, and Film as Vehicle - cover every aspect of the medium - its history, its resemblance to and difference from other arts, its aesthetic laws, the compound effects of sound and vision, the business side and in particular the inherent tendency towards monopoly."

The technique of documentary film production / by W. Hugh Baddeley ; with a preface by Paul Rotha

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.)
