The author examines cameras, film and video stock, lighting, equipment, sound, editing and more. He addresses: who does what on a film or television set; how a film or television set is arranged and why; what happens during a typical day of shooting; and how details such as focus, camera angle and microphone position affect the entire process. The related vocabulary is explained too.
