As director of photography, operator, focus assistant, clapper loader or rostrum cameraman, you will find valuable practical insight in this book. From script to answer print, from budget documentary to epic feature, there is information here on all the common problems and most of the unusual ones as well. Subjects covered include choice of film stock, exposure and lighting techniques, the laboratory, day for night, hostile environments, synchronising for TV, helicopter mounts and underwater shooting. As technical director of the world's largest motion picture equipment suppliers, and a film cameraman, David Samuelson is eminently qualified to give the professional the advice he needs.”
