The DSLR cinema revolution began over ten years ago. Professional filmmakers, students, video journalists, event video shooters, production houses, and others jumped at the opportunity to shoot cinematic images on these low budget cameras. The first edition of the book mapped the way focusing exclusively on DSLRs. This new edition shows how you can create stunning cinematic images using low budget cinema cameras, from iPhones to the C200. The author examines new cameras and new projects as filmmakers shoot action movies with the Panasonic GH5, craft personal stories with Blackmagic’s Pocket Cinema Camera, make documentaries and short films with the Canon C100 Mark II, and create music videos with the 5D Mark IV. This book, like the previous edition, takes the wisdom of some of the best shooters and empowers you to create visually stunning images with low budget cinema cameras. It includes six all new case studies, as well as updated examples from short films and documentaries. This book contains the essential tools to make you a better visual storyteller. FEATURES An examination of the creative and technical choices filmmakers face—everything from why we move cameras to shooting flat in order to widen the dynamic range of cameras Case studies from documentary filmmakers, news shooters, fiction makers, a visual anthropologist, and recent film school graduates An updated list of gear for low-budget filmmakers, including a section on what to look for in the gear you need to shoot and edit your projects

Aus Erfahrung spricht er über Themen wie Kontinuität und Diskontinuität beim Schneiden; Traum und Wirklichkeit; Kriterien für einen guten Schnitt; den Lidschlag als emotionaler Schnitt; den digitalen Schnitt und vieles mehr. >Dies ist kein Lehrbuch über die Technik des Schneidens. Es beschäftigt sich mit den künstlerischen - und einigen technischen - Gründen, warum ich bestimmte Dinge tue und - basierend auf meiner Erfahrung - wie ich das meiste aus dem Prozeß des kreativen Schneidens heraushole.
