Good question! There are several wonderful resources to help answer that question. First and foremost is the book I wrote which describes exactly what you're asking primarily because no other book out there told me (or anyone else) the answer to that question. So, first go to www.whatireallywanttodo.com to see what I'm talking about. :)


THEN, go to the "additional resources" page at that same website for an extensive list of websites and books (scroll down) that zero in on aspects of filmmaking and cinematography. I'm sure you'll receive a lot of suggestions here which will all be very good, but to get the gist of the rest of the books/DVDs/etc to put them in context, please start with What I Really Want To Do, particularly chapters 1 through 5 and then the entire Camera Department section.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask! :)
