Through a combination of accessible language, visual material and key interviews the production process is illustrated in easy to digest stages. "The Fundamentals of Film Making" offers a valuable insight into the working methods of film makers. Starting with clear explanations of the different roles within the production team this book sets out the division of labour and illustrates how these separate departments come together to produce a film. It is both a practical guide and creative inspiration to new film makers looking for a way to navigate the field. This title is aimed at foundation level and first year undergraduates needing to understand the basic concepts of the discipline before moving into more in-depth areas of film making, students of media, film studies and the visual arts, and amateur enthusiasts interested in developing their skills in, and knowledge of, film making.
