Book Description

Film is a distinct art form that has its own vocabulary as well as its own style. Film Art, written by David Bordwell and Kristin Thompson, has been the best-selling and most well acclaimed introduction to the analysis of cinema ever since it was first published in 1979. The writers assist students in developing a basic set of analytical abilities that will expand their comprehension of any film, regardless of its genre, by taking a skills-centered approach to teaching, which is backed by examples from many different time periods and nations. Students have a better awareness for how creative choices made by filmmakers affect what viewers experience and how they respond when they are exposed to examples that go into greater detail. Film Art is abundantly illustrated with over a thousand frame enlargements taken directly from finished films. These provide concrete demonstrations of many topics that are discussed throughout the book. In addition to updated examples and expanded coverage of digital filmmaking, the eleventh edition of Film Art introduces SmartBook, the first and only adaptive reading experience that is currently available. SmartBook is designed to assist students in maintaining concentration, making the most of their study time, and remembering fundamental ideas.
