The merging of still photography with mechanized projection instruments in the late nineteenth century gave us what became the rich and exciting art of cinema. Here is its story, starting with the Lumiere brothers in Paris and Thomas Edison in America. Early experiments evolved into film classics such as The Great train Robbery (1903), the Mack Sennett, Charlie Chaplin, and Buster Keaton comedies, the expressionist films of Fritz Lang and Sergey Eisenstein, and the early "talkies". A century of film-making is reviewed in words and pictures that cover the comedies, musicals, and drama. Readers learn how film-making technique has changed over time, from the magic lantern to advanced methods of computer animation, rear projection, Technicolor, 3D, special effects, camera panning and perspective, script-writing and directing.

Making Your First Film


Making Your First Film


$21.89


"Making Your First Film" is a concise and meaty resource that will pay for itself a thousand times over. It doesn’t wax eloquent about things you don’t have time to read. It’s not an all encompassing treaty on filmmaking because reading text books won’t get your film made. And it includes something that most books don’t; the owner of the book receives THREE FREE emails and/or telephone contacts with our Hollywood Production Company, Castlight Pictures. We will take your emails and talk to you on the telephone to get you started. You will receive expertise from our producers/directors and writers. What book gives you that? You’ve heard the adage in one of Tiger Woods’ commercials that success is 90% perspiration and 10% inspiration. Well, filmmaking is about the same ratio. Darwinian odds are at play more than film schools and "long-winded" books want to admit. It’s more about "doing" than "knowing." Most people can figure out how to write, get written or buy a script. What they can’t figure out is how to get the money to make their film and what to do next. Regardless if it’s a short, a feature or a documentary only those who know how to mine their own resources and contacts to raise capital are going to be filmmakers. Anybody can write a script and hope Hollywood comes calling. I can’t tell you how many scripts and people with them are out there. All waiting for an Agent, an Option, a Sale or Film Deal to propel them into what they really want to do: make films This book is different. If you don’t want to work hard, and I mean hard, at making your film, go buy a treaty on filmmaking, hang out at Starbucks and tap on your laptop along with the others. However, if you’re ready to make things happen, today, then let’s get started.

Projections 10: Hollywood Film-Makers on Film-Making


Projections 10: Hollywood Film-Makers on Film-Making


$3.95


Ever since his first journey to Hollywood in 1987, the director Mike Figgis has been intrigued by the workings of the studio system. As he progressed from the acclaim for his first American-produced film, Internal Affairs, through hellish studio wrangles on Mr. Jones and on to the Academy Award-winning success of Leaving Las Vegas, Figgis has always wanted to find a way to document the dubious mores of the Hollywood system. For Projections 10, he accepted an invitation to return to Los Angeles in late 1998 as guest editor and create such a document. The format is simple: a series of taped, no-holds-barred conversations with filmmakers, directors, actors, writers, managers, and agents. What emerges from these interviews with Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, Sony Pictures head John Calley, producer Jerry Bruckheimer, and others is a fairly dark picture of an industry where money does more than talk. And in addition to exploring the corrupting influence of money, Projections 10 asks such questions as: Why does Hollywood still rely on formula? What is the position of women in filmmaking and in film today? And where is the studio system that the word "Hollywood" represents going? Also included is Figgis’s own journal from his visit in 1998 and his impressions of the films he saw.

Making Dead Birds: Chronicle of a Film


Making Dead Birds: Chronicle of a Film


$40.05


Robert Gardner’s classic "Dead Birds" is one of the most highly acclaimed and controversial documentary films ever made. This detailed and candid account of the process of making "Dead Birds," from the birth of the idea through filming in New Guinea to editing and releasing the finished film, is more than the chronicle of a single work. It is also a thoughtful examination of what it meant to record the moving and violent rituals of warrior-farmers in the New Guinea highlands and to present to the world a graphic story of their behavior as a window onto our own. Letters, journals, telegrams, newspaper clippings, and over 50 images are assembled to recreate a vivid chronology of events. "Making Dead Birds" not only addresses the art and practice of filmmaking, but also explores issues of representation and the discovery of meaning in human lives. Gardner led a remarkable cast of participants on the 1961 expedition. All brought back extraordinary bodies of work. Probably most influential of all was "Dead Birds," which marked a sea change in nonfiction filmmaking. This book takes the reader inside the creative process of making that landmark film and offers a revealing look into the heart and mind of one of the great filmmakers of our time.

Of course, you’ll meet Suraj Sharma, the sixteen-year-old unknown Indian high-school student who won the part of Pi although he had no acting experience and didn’t even know how to swim – yet in the end performed all of his own stunts. You’ll learn about the massive wave tank, custom-built for the film that replicated a vast, stormy ocean in all its moods, thanks to a complex and specially devised menu of wave and wind combinations, some really powerful machinery, and tons of water. You’ll get to look inside the fifty-page fully illustrated “survival guide” that shipwreck survivor Steven Callahan created for Pi to consult on his raft. And you’ll read about King, Themis, Minh, and Jonas, the four Bengal tigers used in the film – and discover how visual effects were able to create a seamless 3-D image of the tiger Richard Parker. A foreword by Yann Martel, an introduction by Ang Lee, and an incredible range of visual materials – fine art, vintage archival imagery, and commissioned portfolios by photographer Mary Ellen Mark and artist Alexis Rockman – supplement the films storyboards, sketches, and stills, rounding out this highly experiential book for lovers of the novel and film viewers alike.

Grant’s debut directorial film, this memoir captures the work behind this labor of love and the realization and fulfillment of a dream come to life.

Third World Film Making and the West


Third World Film Making and the West


$3.95


This volume is the first fully comprehensive account of film production in the Third World. Although they are usually ignored or marginalized in histories of world cinema," Third World countries now produce well over half of the world’s films. Roy Armes sets out initially to place this huge output in a wider context, examining the forces of tradition and colonialism that have shaped the Third World–defined as those countries that have emerged from Western control but have not fully developed their economic potential or rejected the capitalist system in favor of some socialist alternative. He then considers the paradoxes of social structure and cultural life in the post-independence world, where even such basic concepts as "nation," "national culture," and "language" are problematic. The first experience of cinema for such countries has invariably been that of imported Western films, which created the audience and, in most cases, still dominate the market today. Thus, Third World film makers have had to ssert their identity against formidable outside pressures. The later sections of the book look at their output from a number of angles: in terms of the stages of overall growth and corresponding stages of cinematic development; from the point of view of regional evolution in Asia, Africa, and Latin America; and through a detailed examination of the work of some of the Third World’s most striking film innovators. In addition to charting the broad outlines of filmic developments too little known in Europe and the United States, the book calls into question many of the assumptions that shape conventional film history. It stresse the role of distribution in defining and limiting production, queries simplistic notions of independent "national cinemas," and points to the need to take social and economic factors into account when considering authorship in cinema. Above all, the book celebrates the achievements of a mass of largely unknown film makers who, in difficult circumstances, have distinctively expanded our definitions of the art of cinema. Roy Armes, who lives in London, has written nine books on film, his most recent being "French Cinema." He spent more than three years researching this volume.

Westerns: Making the Man in Fiction and Film


Westerns: Making the Man in Fiction and Film


$7.88


Ranging from the novels of James Fenimore Cooper to Louis L’Amour, and from classic films like "Stagecoach" to spaghetti Westerns like "A Fistful of Dollars," Mitchell shows how Westerns helped assuage a series of crises in American culture. This landmark study shows that the Western owes its perennial appeal not to unchanging conventions but to the deftness with which it responds to the obsessions and fears of its audience. And no obsession, Lee Mitchell argues, has figured more prominently in the Western than what it means to be a man. "Elegantly written. . . . provocative . . . characterized by Mitchell’s] own tendency to shoot from the hip."–J. Hoberman, "London Review of Books" " Mitchell’s] book would be worth reading just for the way he relates Benjamin Spock’s "Baby and Child" to the postwar Western."–"The Observer" "Integrating a careful handling of historical context with a keen eye for textual nuances, Mitchell reconstructs the Western’s aesthetic tradition of the 19th century."–Aaron M. Wehner, "San Francisco Review"

The Big Lebowski: The Making of a Coen Brothers Film


The Big Lebowski: The Making of a Coen Brothers Film


$3.95


Ethan and Joel Coen have carved out their niche as America’s preeminent independent filmmakers. Their films are quirky, arresting, comic, and intelligent.

In a prose style that complements the Coens’s filmic one, the book discusses the Coens’s oeuvre, the themes of their films, their atypical brand of humor, their craft and their artistic vision. Several scenes of The Big Lebowski are examined closely to see how the movie goes from idea to reality, making this an ideal book for fans, filmmakers, and filmmaking students. The Big Lebowski is a razor-sharp comedy thriller of mistaken identity, gangsters, bowling, kidnapping, and money gone astray, written by the Coens, directed by Joel Coen, and produced by Ethan Coen. In addition to Jeff Bridges and John Goodman, the film stars Steve Buscemi, Julianne Moore, John Turturro, Willem DaFoe, Sam Elliot, and Ben Gazzara.

To me, no writer has ever used the Chinese language as cruelly as Zhang Ailing (Eileen Chang), and no story of hers is as beautiful or as cruel as "Lust, Caution." Eileen Chang’s thrilling short story "Lust, Caution"–a devastating tale of love, betrayal, and manipulation set in Shanghai during World War II–marks with a forceful clarity her mastery of the form. Newly adapted into a major motion picture by Academy Award-winning director Ang Lee, "Lust, Caution "has become an equally remarkable addition to the work of one of the most internationally renowned directors. Included in this unique volume are the original story by Eileen Chang, as well as the screenplay by Wang Hui Ling and James Schamus. Key members of the production have written notes about Chang and about the process of adapting "Lust, Caution." With a biographical essay on Chang by translator Julia Lovell and eight pages of color stills from the film, this volume will become the definitive edition for film students and aficionados alike.
