Books and other literature for a beginning filmmaker? (2 replies)
I've just begun work on a film project about someone dealing with mental illness. I have had limited exposure making films, mostly helping around on a set making a film in 48H. This time, I'm working as the Director of Photography and would love to learn more about cinematography as a whole.
Are there any works of literature you'd recommend catching up on? Books or other things that you've personally gained a lot of knowledge from?
Would love to hear from you, love your work and everything you're doing.
These are few of the most recent books I have read, I recommend all of them
American Cinematographer Manual
Lighting for Cinematography - David Landau
The Camera Assistant Handbook - Douglas C.
Set Lighting Technician's Handbook - Harry C. Box
The Practical Zone System - Chris Johnson
