Cinematic Storytelling

£6.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

How do directors use screen direction to suggest conflict? How do screenwriters exploit film space to show change? How does editing style determine emotional response? Many first-time writers and directors do not consider this. They forego the huge creative resource of the film medium defaulting instead to dialogue and narration to tell their screen story. Yet most movies are carried by sound and picture. What the industry's most successful writers and directors have in common is that they have mastered the cinematic conventions specific to the medium. They have harnessed non-dialogue techniques to create some of the most cinematic moments in movie history. This book is intended to help writers and directors more fully exploit the medium's storytelling techniques. It contains 100 non-dialogue techniques that have been used by the industry's top writers and directors. From "Metropolis" and "Citizen Kane" to "Dead Man" and "Kill Bill", the book illustrates - through 500 frame grabs and 75 script excerpts - how the inherent storytelling devices specific to film were exploited.  It is brilliantly illustrated throughout with 500 carefully chosen frame grabs from classic films of the past and present.
This edition is in very good condition, tightly bound with clean white pages.  The soft back cover and spine are also in very good condition with no blemishes.
