I’m a professional photographer who just began to learn about videography and video production. Can someone recommend good books on video, audio, editing, documentary making, etc…
"The Five C’s of Cinematrography" by Joseph V. Mascelli has been used by film schools for many years. It went out of print for a few years, but is now back in print as paperback. It is a wonderful introduction to professional movie making. Granted, it was written for FILM production, but almost all of it applies to VIDEO production as well.
Highly recommended! 😉
P.S. — Dusting off my bookshelf again, "The Technique of Film Editing" by Karel Reisz is a classic work on the ART of editing. Now in 2nd edition.
"The Filmmaker’s Handbook" by Steven Ascher and Edward Pincus
