Making Pictures: A Century of European Cinematography

Making Pictures: A Century of European Cinematography




In this impressive volume, IMAGO, the Federation of European Cinematographers (founded in 1992), selected 100 European films to represent European accomplishment in the cinema. Stills from each film are presented with a text that describes the film's aims, innovations, narrative, and technique, with particular emphasis given to camera techniques. Two lengthy chapters, on the history of European cinema (by Michael Leitch) and the medium of cinematography (by Cathy Greenhalgh) introduce the survey of 100 films. The book concludes with seven chapters on technical equipment, including film, cameras, studios, and lighting. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
