The Visual Story - Creating the Visual Structure of Film, TV and Digital Media Second Edition - If you can't make it to one of Bruce Block's legendary visual storytelling seminars, then you need his book. 

Now in full color for the first time, this best-seller offers a clear view of the relationship between the story/script structure and the visual structure of a film, video, animated piece, or video game. You'll learn how to structure your visuals as carefully as a writer structures a story or a composer structures music.

Understanding visual structure allows you to communicate moods and emotions, and most importantly, reveals the critical relationship between story structure and visual structure.

The concepts in this book will benefit writers, directors, photographers, production designers, art directors, and editors who are always confronted by the same visual problems that have faced every picture maker in the past, present, and future.

Readership: Filmmakers and media creators who want to improve the visual structure their work; directors, cinematographers, editors, animators, art directors, video game designers, storyboard artists; students in media production or aesthetics courses.
