INSIDE THE PARADIGM SHIFT THAT'S REMAKING THE MOTI0N PICTURE INDUSTRY
Not since the advent of sound has technology so greatly impacted motion pictures. With its huge cost-saving potential, digital technology can alter every aspect of the movie-making process, from shooting through postproduction to delivery and exhibition.

The digital cinema revolution is the result of years of progress in the technologies of film, computer graphics, and high-definition television. Now Brian McKernan, founding editor of Digital Cinema magazine, provides an up-to-date look at how new digital technologies are reshaping the movie industry.

  • Digital cinema -- how it came about, its history and pioneers
  • Understanding digital image compression
  • The latest camera choices for digital cinematography -- from high end systems to the affordable world of indie filmmaking
  • Audio and the cinema -- why sound is half the picture
  • The revolution in postproduction -- the convergence of computer graphics, HDTV, film, and video
  • Nonlinear editing―software choices, new techniques, and digital compositing
  • Digital intermediates--color grading, changing the shot after the shoot, film transfer, and film recording
  • Independent digital filmmaking in Hollywood and across the nation -- the democratization of the movies
  • The new role of the cinematographer in the digital age
  • Understanding digital projection technologies
  • What digital cinema means to indie productions, exhibitors, film distribution, and the future of the movies

You'll also find insights on the cost-vs.-quality controversy, the impact of digital cinema on creative freedom, and the integration of film and digital from such leading filmmakers as George Lucas, Robert Rodriguez, and Michael Ballhaus ASC.
