Directing the Camera
On motion picture and television sets today the director spends 90% of his time directing the camera. Professional actors come to set prepared to direct themselves. In spite of this recent change, 90% of all books on directing do not teach specifically how to direct the camera. Gil Bettman's new book, Directing the Camera, fills that void by teaching the elements of craft that contemporary directors use to give their films the visually dynamic look preferred by audiences today. The first half of this book is devoted to teaching a systemised approach that can be used to design the very best moving shot for any dialogue scene, no matter how complex or long. Bettman's "Five Task" approach enables the aspiring director to quickly grasp this difficult element of directorial craft. In the second half the reader is taught how to shoot action sequences using moving and static cameras and the gamut of lenses to achieve the magic trick essential to shooting action -- making stunts that are highly controlled and neither violent nor dangerous look completely mind-blowing.

A gripping, heart-wrenching, and wholly remarkable tale of coming-of-age in a South poisoned by virulent prejudice, it views a world of great beauty and savage inequities through the eyes of a young girl, as her father-a crusading local lawyer-risks everything to defend a black man unjustly accused of a terrible crime.
