Summary: This book provides teachers and students with a teaching tool not currently available. It fills a gap in the literature by going beyond simple discussions of hardware usage, basic technical knowledge, and descriptions of technique to in-depth discussions of how this knowledge can be applied in a coherent approach to production. Using an easy to understand, building block approach, the book begins by isolating elements of film and television into twelve discussions of ...show more production techniques, represented by the book's twelve chapters. By learning hands-on skills and techniques, students learn to create significant works with a high degree of craft. Once basic instruction on theme and treatment, mood, and characterization is completed, Douglass and Harnden discuss symbols and significance, informing students how to design meaningful, moving works on film. The Art of Technique teaches students to create believable, significant films and videos, and helps them to develop a sophisticated and mature visual approach.

Describes how students can achieve satisfying production results, even with limited equipment, by teaching them professional production values.

Shows students how to use basic techniques for creative purposes, in order to achieve high-quality, effective, and intelligent work.
