Post Production and the Invisible Revolution of Filmmaking Excerpt :

The introduction of post-production during the transition from silent cinema to the Synchronized Sound era in the 1920s' American studio system resulted in what has been a previously unheralded revolution in filmmaking. This transition made possible a product that could be easily mass-produced, serving both to transform and homogenize film presentation, fundamentally creating a new art form. This book studies the discourses surrounding post-production, as well as the aesthetic effects of the post-production’s introduction during the 1920s and 1930s, by exploring the philosophies and issues faced by practitioners during this transitional, transformative period.

Videojournalism addresses all of these challenges, and more - never losing sight of the main point: telling a great story. This book, based on extensive interviews with professionals in the field, is for anyone learning how to master the art and craft of telling real short-form stories with words, sound and pictures for the Web or television.
