Video Production: Disciplines and Techniques (10th edition)

by Lynne S. Gross James C. Foust

Written in a readable style, this text introduces students to the operations underlying multiple-camera video production. In addition to covering technological skills and equipment, the text also emphasizes the importance of interpersonal skills, teamwork, and professionalism. Early chapters of the text overview the differences between studio, field, and remote truck production, review the duties of cast and crew, and outline crucial producing and directing functions. These chapters are followed by seven equipment chapters, and a final chapter on field production. B&w photos, drawings, chapter exercises, and a glossary are included. This tenth edition is revised and reorganized to take into account recent changes in the field of video production, with increased emphasis on digital and high-definition formats. It features annotated screen shot examples of nonlinear editing programs, information on preparing video for use on the Internet and portable devices, and additional emphasis throughout on video production for newscasts. There is also updated coverage of various file formats for traditional and alternate content delivery systems. A companion web site contains interactive exercises, review quizzes, flash cards for vocabulary review, downloadable sample forms, and video and audio clips demonstrating principles and techniques. Gross is affiliated with California State University-Fullerton. Foust is head of the Broadcast Journalism sequence in the Department of Journalism at Bowling Green State University.
