One of the best just got better!
Since its release in 2009, Master Shots has rocketed to the top of the charts as one of the finest books on filmmaking. In this second edition, every image has been digitally remastered for clarity and additional text has been written as a direct response to feedback from readers of the first edition.
Master Shots gives filmmakers the techniques they need to execute complex, original shots on any budget. By using powerful master shots and well-executed moves, directors can develop a strong style and stand out from the crowd. Most low-budget movies look low-budget, because the director is forced to compromise at the last minute.
Master Shots gives you so many powerful techniques that you ll be able to respond, even under pressure, and create knock-out shots. Even when the clock is ticking and the light is fading, the techniques in this book can rescue your film, and make every shot look like it cost a fortune. Each technique is illustrated with samples from great feature films and computer-generated diagrams for absolute clarity
