Whether hand-held, shoulder-held, head-mounted, dollied, boomed or on a Steadicam, Camera Operating is like acting - that is, it is about reacting. For the audience, the operating can put them where they want to be in the moment they want to be there, because of where they were the moment before. This handbook helps directors and cinematographers create powerful shots with a strong motivation behind each move. You will gain a strong understanding of the fundamentals of camera operation, namely: why to move the camera; when it's appropriate to move it, and the psychological and emotional consequences to the audience of this move; and, how this move can be accomplished using the appropriate tools in the most effective and production-friendly manner. Understand why, when, and how to move the camera to enhance your storytelling. Learn the skills and on-set procedures of motion picture & television camera operation from the best in the trade. It features exclusive interviews with an international group of the inventors and movers in this field.
