This extraordinary handbook was inspired by the distinctive concerns of anthropologists and others who film people in the field. The authors cover the practical, technical, and theoretical aspects of filming, from fundraising to exhibition, in lucid and complete detail information never before assembled in one place. The first section discusses filmmaking styles and the assumptions that frequently hide unacknowledged behind them, as well as the practical and ethical issues involved in moving from fieldwork to filmmaking. The second section concisely and clearly explains the technical aspects, including how to select and use equipment, how to shoot film and video, and the reasons for choosing one or the other, and how to record sound. Finally, the third section outlines the entire process of filmmaking: preproduction, production, postproduction, and distribution. Filled with useful illustrations and covering documentary and ethnographic filmmaking of all kinds, qCross-Cultural Filmmakingq will be as essential to the anthropologist or independent documentarian on location as to the student in the classroom.qIf your tape recorder or mixer contains one or more fuses, you should have some spares on hand. You should also have a spare AC adapter as well as spare (if possible, alkaline) batteries. Finally, a tiny portable voltage meter (preferably with a continuity tester) lets you verify connections and currents. RECORDING TIPSanbsp;...
