Today’s filmmakers are empowered by an arsenal of powerful, creative options with which to tell their story. Modern Post examines and demystifies these tools and workflows and demonstrates how these decisions can empower your storytelling.
Using non-technical language to guide you through everything you should consider before you start shooting, authors Scott Arundale and Tashi Trieu begin with a look at traditional film techniques and how they impact current trends. Next they offer a look at the latest generation of digital camera and capture systems before moving on to:
- Preproduction- what camera is best for telling your story and why, budgeting for post
- Production- on-set data management, dailies, green screen, digital cinematography
- Postproduction- RAW vs. compressed footage, editing, visual effects, color correction, sound and deliverables including DCP creation
The book features cutting-edge discussion about the role of the digital imaging technician (DIT), how you can best use the Cloud, motion graphics, sound design, and much more. This companion website features videos of techniques discussed in the book, as well as timely technological updates.
