Modern Post from Focal Press examines and demystifies the tools and workflows of today's filmmakers and demonstrates how they can be used to empower your storytelling. Using non-technical language, authors Scott Arundale and Tashi Trieu guide you through everything you should consider before you start shooting. This softcover book begins with a look at past methodologies, starting with traditional film techniques, and how they impact current trends. Then it moves on to the latest generation of digital camera and capture systems, covering all stages of the digital filmmaking process, from pre-production and to post-production.
The book features cutting-edge discussions about the role of the digital imaging technician (DIT), how you can best use the Cloud, motion graphics, sound design, and much more. Case studies show you these solutions being applied in real-world situations, and the companion website features videos of techniques discussed in the book, as well as timely updates about technological changes in the landscape.
