Descripción del producto


"Engaging and insightful, well-researched and intelligent, McClean's book effectively chronicles the development of, and increasing reliance on, digital visual effects, the use of which is now virtually indespensible to the filmmaking process. More important, she contextualizes the use of visual effects as an evolving set of techniques that, while greatly expanding the possibilities for contemporary filmmaking, remain simply another powerful set of tools in the service of the ancient art of storytelling and mythmaking. Essential for 21st century filmmakers."--Mike Chambers, Visual Effects Producer

Descripción del producto

Computer-generated effects are often blamed for bad Hollywood movies. Yet when a critic complains that "technology swamps storytelling" (in a review of Van Helsing, calling it "an example of everything that is wrong with Hollywood computer-generated effects movies"), it says more about the weakness of the story than the strength of the technology. In Digital Storytelling, Shilo McClean shows how digital visual effects can be a tool of storytelling in film, adding narrative power as do sound, color, and "experimental" camera angles -- other innovative film technologies that were once criticized for being distractions from the story. It is time, she says, to rethink the function of digital visual effects.Effects artists say -- contrary to the critics -- that effects always derive from story. Digital effects are a part of production, not post-production; they are becoming part of the story development process. Digital Storytelling is grounded in filmmaking, the scriptwriting process in particular. McClean considers crucial questions about digital visual effects -- whether they undermine classical storytelling structure, if they always call attention to themselves, whether their use is limited to certain genres -- and looks at contemporary films (including a chapter-long analysis of Steven Spielberg's use of computer-generated effects) and contemporary film theory to find the answers. McClean argues that to consider digital visual effects as simply contributing the "wow" factor underestimates them. They are, she writes, the legitimate inheritors of film storycraft.

HASH(0x9b8c4ab0) de un máximo de 5 estrellas GREAT CRITIQUE OF CRAFT FOR VIZ F/X ARTISTS AND PRODUCERS 2 de abril de 2007
Por Anthony Torres - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa dura
The faults of this book? Point size is under 9 points which strains the eyes given that this is 99% text. There are a few photographs, but the focus of this book is use of Digital Visual Effects in contemporary movies, and how the author and critics are responding to them.

As I'm a sucker for anything related to Visual Effects, I enjoyed this book. He defines concepts that are perhaps intuitive to a visual effects artist. Yet, making you aware of these things is quite cool. Someone has noticed, and taken the time to process what it all might mean.

I appreciate that the author connects the story and visual effects, though some quotes are heavy handed. An ILM staffer complains that "Borne Identity" lost him during a exaggerated shot. It's a movie, not a documentary. The most perceptive part goes into the misidentification of f/x by critics, specifically "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," which used extensive digital effects that were attributed to incamera or old-style f/x. I wish he would've discussed Roman Coppola's CQ, which went whole hog chemical f/x. Still, there's plenty to consider. F/X are not the enemy. Mediocre filmmaking is.

At last, someone explains the link between storytelling and digital visual effects. This timely book dispels the myths and offers real tools for filmmakers.

It is an extremely thorough account of visual storytelling.

Highly recommended.

Needed this for a high school student project on the topic of digital enhancements in todays media. Project isn't due for several weeks and the book hasn't been put to use as seriously as it will be, so can't say whether it's useful yet. However, it's a one-of-a-kind publication and was hard to find, so thanks Amazon!
