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.

About the Author:

Ivan S. Panushev is a licensed engineer who has researched ICFs for the past three years. He is a graduate of three ICF training programs and labored on several job sites to learn the details of ICF construction first-hand. His articles on ICFs have appeared in such magazines as Concrete Construction, and he is the author of the Prescriptive Method for Connecting Cold-Formed Steel Framing to Insulating Concrete Form Walls in Residential Construction.

Pieter A. VanderWerf, Ph.D., is an expert on insulating concrete forms in construction who has been researching the subject since 1993. A columnist for Permanent Buildings and Foundations, a trade industry publication, he is the co-author of two other books on insulating concrete forms: Insulating Concrete Forms for Residential Design and Construction and the Insulating Concrete Forms Construction Manual. He also co-authored The Portland Cement Association's Guide to Concrete Homebuilding Systems. (All three books are also published by McGraw-Hill.) He has served as general contractor on ICF homes and for a year he moderated an online ICF message board.
