This is How You Make a Movie (Hardback)

£20.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

With a twist on the practical movie-making genre, This Is How You Make a Movie brings the subject to life by explaining the terms and processes through the films you know and love. 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. 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.
