As seen on TV
Television from the point of view of the people who make it: photographers, segment producers, audio engineers, computer-graphic artists, grips, gaffers, and animators. Here's the real story on network news, talk shows, cable, prime time serials, and more. Includes such topics as: where to shoot a White House stand-up; how to pre-interview a guest for an appearance on Live with Regis; why film is better than videotape, sometimes; how to scout locations for a network dramatic series; cranes explained, also dollies, rail shots, animation stands, rain towers, and microphone booms; how to choreograph a car chase; where to rent nightsticks, police badges, rubber cameras, faux high-tech weaponry, stunt dummies, and body parts; how to edit a teaser; adding music and sound effects; an explanation of phone futzing; combining layers and layers of video--how and why; animation--cut out, stop motion, computer graphic, blendo; a grip's tool apron annotated.--From publisher description.
