"Cinematic Motion" has helped directors create a personal camera style and master complex staging challenges for over a decade. Since digital technology has revolutionized filmmaking, this second edition adds chapters on digital visualization and script breakdown. The book uses extensive illustrations to explain how to create extended sequence shots, elaborate moving camera choreography, and tracking shots with multiple story points. Interviews with top Hollywood craftspeople demonstrate how to bring sophisticated ideas to life. Readers will be able to follow links to the MWP website and interact with the author's original storyboards, built in 3D with the latest storyboard software. This title includes interactive online 3D storyboards and over 200 illustrations and charts. It is written by an award-winning filmmaker and writer.
