How Hollywood Does It [electronic resource]: Film History & Techniques of Cinematography

How Hollywood Does It takes a look at the history and techniques of cinematography starting from the birth of motion pictures through to the 21st century. In the first decade of motion pictures, the role of the cinematographer or camera operator and director were one and the same, but as cinema evolved, the duties of the director and cinematographer diverged. Cinematography is of paramount importance to successful narrative, and utilizes many techniques to assist both the storytelling within a film as well as its visual aesthetic.
