This Is How You Make a Movie
Using key scenes from some of the best-loved movies of all time, Tim Grierson explores everything from cinematography to the secrets of talking to camera. Deep focus is explored through Citizen Kane, forced perspective through Elf, and slow motion through Reservoir Dogs. Examples from blockbusters (Wonder Woman) to Oscar-winners (Rocky), silent-era gems (Intolerance) to recent art-house treasures (American Honey), give readers a glimpse of cinema’s breadth and potential.
A fascinating read for film buffs who want to understand what goes on behind the camera, and above all an essential read for students and beginners in the industry.
With sections on acting, directing, lighting and camera, writing and editing, this book includes all the technical help you need to get your film career off the ground.
