From the Publisher
Film Production is a revision of a well-established film text, formerly The Technique of Film Production, which has been substantially revised. Additional material has been added on: new film stocks from Agfa, Kodak, and Fuji; digital sound recording; new lab techniques; additional budget information; new cameras and equipment, including timecode; computer generated film images and 'morphing.' The editing chapter has been greatly changed, with discussion of video and digital video editing, film to tape transfers and the new computer based non-linear editing system.
