Want to be a filmmaker? Pocket Film School is the answer
One of the best books for aspiring directors, cinematographers, writers and editors, Pocket Film School covers it all.
The thing that separates a good film from a great film is its ability to tell a story through visuals alone. When you can look at a shot and feel everything the character is feeling, without any need for sound, that is when you know a filmmaker has done a good job.
Cinema is a visual language that culminates a variety of techniques and principles to achieve the same end goal, which is telling a story and achieving a reaction from an audience. Whether it’s composition, movement, blocking or any of the other principles of filmmaking, “Pocket Film School” sets out to teach all you aspiring filmmakers how to fully utilise these techniques.
