Voice & Vision is a comprehensive manual for the independent filmmakers and film students who need a solid grounding in the tools, techniques, and processes of the narrative film in order to achieve their artistic vision. This includes essential and detailed information on relevant film, video, and digital tools; a thorough overview of the filmmaking stages; and the aesthetic considerations for telling a visual story. The ultimate goal of this book is to develop your own creative voice while acquiring the practical skills and confidence to use it. Unlike the many books that privilege raw technical information or the line-producing aspects of production, Voice & Vision places creativity, visual expression, and filmic ideas front and center. After all, creativity and the need to express oneself through story and images informs every decision the filmmaker encounters, like choosing a location, an actor, a film stock, a focal length, a lighting set-up, an edit point, or a sound effect. This book continually emphasizes the connection between technical and practical decisions and their impact on the filmmakers vision. In Practice sidebars throughout the book connect conceptual, aesthetic and technical issues to their application in the real world. Some provide a brief analysis of a scene or technique from easily rentable films, which illustrate how a specific technology or process is used to support a conceptual, narrative, or aesthetic impulse. Others recount common production challenges from real student and professional shoots, along with the thought process that led to their solution. Learn how Martin Scorcese reacted when his film location disappeared under the snow, and be inspired to apply a creative problem-solving approach to your own challenges. * Comprehensive technical information on film and digital video production with a focus on low-budget techniques and creative expression * A seamless integration of film and digital video. Express yourself with any camera and any format. * A focus on successful filmmaking within limitations, learn to work successfully with available resources (time, equipment, budget, personnel) and turn limitations into opportunities.
