Whatever type of video you are making, there are fundamental principles that define how you should compose and edit together your shots to tell a coherent story. The grammar of film and TV has been around for well over 100 years and understanding it is a key skill in making movies, even if you choose to break the rules deliberately. Videomaking – The Grammar Revealed starts at the very beginning, guiding you through framing video for movement and editing. Continuity and parallel editing are examined in terms of storytelling, and important concepts such as crossing the line are explored through examples relevant to both the amateur and professional moviemaker. The importance of audio is also explained, and the book rounds off with sample workflows for both shooting and editing. Video examples from the book are freely available on the internet, and you can also download sample footage to experiment with using the video editing software of your choice. The author has practical experience of shooting and editing movies both as a hobbyist and as a broadcast TV director, with over 20 years of experience making continuing drama and comedies. (A version of this book with colour illustrations is also available.)
