Imagine an entire film course -- the history of film, the secrets of film technology, discussion of films, filmmakers, traditions, and genres -- available all on one disc.
That's what you get with the DVD-ROM multimedia edition of How To Read a Film.
James Monaco's book How To Read a Film has been a best-selling favorite since 1977, and has become a standard introduction to film for a generation of readers, viewers, filmmakers, and filmgoers. The DVD-ROM brings the book to life: you can read it, but it also talks to you, plays movie clips, shows you pictures and slide shows, guides you to other references, and lets you play filmmaker by making your own movie.
The disc is fully loaded with:
• More than 130 flim clips
• 4 complete books
• Music, interviews, and audio author's notes
• Interactive labs
• Animated diagrams
• 1,000 illustrations
• Virtual reality tours
• Over 140 reference texts
• Search features
• Linked to the ReadFilm.com website
• And much more!
This is a truly innovative educational experience, combining books, disc, and website with the most advanced technology available. A new way to enliven your basic film studies curriculum!
