Experimental Filmmaking - Break the Machine from Focal Press and written by Kathryn Ramey teaches you everything you need to know about experimental filmmaking.

Experimental filmmaking is characterized by the absence of linear narrative and the use of various abstracting techniques-out-of-focus, painting or scratching on film, and rapid editing. Notable practitioners (who have also made features) include David Lynch, Kathryn Bigelow, Miranda July, and Gus Van Sant. The genre has had widespread influence on the style of mainstream fare such as music videos, commercials, and title design.

This book focuses on the techniques and craft of this genre, showing filmmakers step-by-step the material processes so they can make their own contribution to the field. Information on techniques is in demand but hard to come by.

This book will be of interest to both experimental filmmakers and mainstream practitioners who want to incorporate alternative techniques in their work-especially as a more hand-crafted, DIY aesthetic comes to the forefront.
