ive done my fair share of school and can appreciate a formal eduction at a film school, but in the past I've learned so much more and faster just shooting and reading.

I've got so many questions about shooting motion picture. I know all about emulsions and film speeds and the basics from a background in photography, and I've done a bit of video with MiniDV and premiere, but when it comes to 'overcranking', frame rates, different camera types, transferring to DV to digitally edit, i'm lost. instead of posting question after question on here I'd like to just get a few books that'll help me out. can anyone reccomend me some? I just bought Cinematography 1st ed by Malkiewicz to get a start on it.

Thanks

You should have bought the updated Third Edition that I worked on... I think the First Edition was written in the mid 1970's.

I also recommend Dominic Case's "Film Technology in Post Production".

'reflections' from the asc website, it has got to be one of the BEST books out there on the subject

I really like many of the Focal Press "Media Manuals" series.
