Full-color photos.  Here's a behind-the-scenes look at the history and technology of movies--how sets are built, how stunts are performed, how cartoons and special effects are created, and how films are edited and publicized before release.  The "multiple visuals are eye-catching, impressive, and accurate."--School Library Journal.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-- The almost overwhelming layout of this book saturates readers with pictures, captions, charts, and a brief text, giving the illusion of intense information, but without adequate depth. Platt presents double-page treatments of 28 subjects, including shadow puppets, moving images, cameras, film, motion pictures, stars, studios, make up, props, special effects, animation, sound, etc. The multiple visuals are eye-catching, impressive, and accurate. Film is a browser's paradise; however, students who want to explore the subject beyond this instant gratification should turn to Anderson's Make Your Own Animated Movies and Videotapes (Little, 1991), Schwartz's Making Movies (Lerner, 1989), Meyer's Magic in the Dark (Facts on File, 1985), or Clise's Special Effects (Viking, 1987; o.p.). --Judie Porter, Media Services Center, Portsmouth School Dept . , RI
Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Review:

...a mini museum between the covers of a book. [Eyewitness series] -- The New York Times

These books' striking visual impact will draw in even the most casual readers. [Eyewitness series] -- School Library Journal
