    This book is not bad; as a matter of fact the information in it is actually uite useful once you know how to use it The main flaw of this book is its subtitle When I read learning and breaking the rules of cinematic composition I got the impression that this book would be about the principles of design and elements of visual composition as applied to cinema What the book covers instead are different types of shots and how they are typically used in a film and then how a particular filmmaker has bent their typical use in their film While the book has a chapter titled Principles of Composition and Technical Concepts and while in that chapter the book describes useful cinematic techniues like Hitchcock's rule and compositional guidelines like the Rule of Thirds what I was expecting when reading the book was something like The Visual Story by Bruce Block the actual book I was looking for when I bought The Filmmaker's Eye although being an ignoramus I bought The Filmmaker's Eye first and only found out about The Visual Story when I read Filmmaker's introduction So this book will not provide you with an encyclopedic understanding of the composition elements; which is fine for me since I've now bought and read The Visual Story Do not buy this book if that is what you are looking forNow with that disclaimer out of the way this book is a wonderful tool in that it can function as a good cheat sheet of sorts when writing a screenplay The book comes in use when you have a strong image in your mind that you want to show but do not know what the exact name for the particular shot is The book enables you to just flip through it until until come upon the particular shot type closest to the one you want and gives its technical name Screenplays have to be written in technical language and while this book is written probably for amateurs than for say film school students it can come in handy assuming you know screenplay formatting

    Great book Lots of lessons for beginners or advanced students of filmmaking I love the selection of films used as examples If one were to simply watch all these films they would get a very balanced view of world cinema and all the possibilities it offers There are plenty of titles here I haven't seen and I look forward to catching up with themFor me it was a nice refresher on lenses and how choosing them contributes greatly to what the audience feels and perceivesIn the Breaking the Rules section there are nice tidbits on ways to think outside the box One of my favorites is the Trainspotting example from the Dolly Zoom sectionAlso great examples from Oldboy image systems Marriage of Maria von Braun use of Extreme Close Ups Into the Wild Macro ShotsCOOL TAKEAWAYS In ECU or Macro shots the background does not need to match exactly Audiences accept when something is lit even when it's not realistic or justified Butterflies can block light so that actors are not overexposed in sunny day exteriors I want to someday try a very slow dolly zoom Establishing shots can carry an enormous amount of power I used to take them for granted Emblematic shots can be key pieces in building an image systemI'll keep this as a handy reference in future prep making shot lists and storyboardingCan't wait for Mercado's next book releasing November 1 2015 It's devoted exclusively to lenses Cover has a shot of Johnny Depp from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

    Excellent extremely instructive book I'm glad I figured out how to reuest an interlibrary loan in the NYPL system for it It was recommended in an email newsletter I think from LeahAndMarkcom one of the photographers we actually considered for our wedding and whose style I admire uite a bit The theme of the newsletter was studying composition and they said to read this book and look to film as a place for interesting compositions and inspirationSo even with that intent of getting educated on composition as it applies to photography since I'm not a filmmaker though the one film making class I took in college where we made Super8 films was a fun experience I was still extremely impressed with this book It was written in a way that's still pretty accessible to non film people and used all sorts of examples not just artsy indie films but also Indiana Jones It was also very specific about the different parts that they wanted to call out in each example that demonstrated the principle or type of shot as well as all the many many decisions made to put this shot together Might be obvious to others but film making is a bigger art with many decisions than I had realized before Just the parts of pointing out where there's a certain lighting strategy at play were interesting to meThe part that really won me over though was that each section also had a counterexample of breaking the rules with why and how it was skillfully done So you're not locked in really and the author also discussed how storytelling effectively also means taking into account the history of how a certain techniue has been used in the past Kind of like tvtropesorg's explanation about how just because your favorite show contains an often used trope isn't a bad thing of itself it's a trope for a reason after all

    This little book is filled with wonderful examples of each type of basic camera shot The breaking the rules examples provide a nice counterpoint A thought provoking recommended read for beginning and intermediate film makers
