People 'read' pictures as they do words, and pictures, like sentences, have their own grammar. A picture maker must be able to use the grammar correctly so that the visual story to be told will be clear and easily understood by all the audience. Grammar of the Shot is a manual for novice shooters (or anyone who needs a refresher) on the basic principles of putting together a coherent film or video piece, shot by shot. This book describes in no uncertain terms what absolutely must be in every shot--so that the successful film-maker can build a story that flows smoothly. It's designed as an easy-to-use reference, with each topic covered succinctly and accompanied by clear photographs and diagrams.

Simple, elegant, and easy to use, Grammar of the Shot is a staple of the filmmaker's library.
