READING: Understanding the language of the lens is key for today's filmmakers and cinematographers. Lenses and the different images they produce have the power to propel story, evoke dramatic/emotional responses from the audience, as well as give a film a certain aesthetic. Today, interchangeable lens systems are more accessible than ever due to their decreasing prices and the increasing amounts of cameras that allow for interchangeable lens use. While some cinematography books touch on the use of different lenses, this is the first book to treat the topic with the breadth it commands. Following the same format of the author's first book, the very successful, Filmmaker's Eye: Learning (and Breaking) the Rules of Cinematic Composition, Filmmaker's Eye: Language of the Lens shows readers in a visually-stunning way how crucial lens selection is to the design and intentions of a filmmaker's visual story. Scenes from a wide range of movies are shown in 4-color, and then broken down to convey what lens was used, why it was used, and how the reader can use that lens on their own film to achieve the look, story, and emotions they seek.

READING: Wijsbegeerte, zei Bertrand Russell, is een hardnekkige poging om zo helder en redelijk mogelijk te denken. De rivier van Herakleitos bespreekt de geschiedenis van de westerse wijsbegeerte met Russells omschrijving als rode draad. Plato, Aristoteles, Descartes, Spinoza, Popper, Rorty en vele anderen passeren de revue en worden in hun context geplaatst. Bovenal maken de auteurs duidelijk welke problemen deze filosofen bezighielden en hoe ze die probeerden op te lossen. De ontwikkeling van de experimentele methode in de zeventiende eeuw maakte het mogelijk om veel wijsgerige problemen wetenschappelijk aan te pakken. Dat betekende niet dat de wijsbegeerte overbodig werd. Tot vandaag zijn er talloze problemen van ethische, politieke en kennistheoretische aard, waarvan men niet weet hoe men ze strikt wetenschappelijk kan oplossen. Sommigen leiden hieruit af dat onze antwoorden steeds relatief zijn. Maar het behoort net tot de taak van de filosofie op zoek te gaan naar een rationele en objectieve aanpak, ondanks het gebrek aan een wetenschappelijke methode. Tegelijk moet het wijsgerig onderzoek aantonen hoe drogredenen ontstaan, hoe kennis soms verkeerd of onvoldoende gefundeerd wordt en hoe men tot onterechte conclusies komt en verkeerde verbanden legt. De rivier van Herakleitos beschrijft, op eigenzinnige wijze, hoe de grootste filosofen dat deden en daarbij vaak gebruikmaakten van, of zich spiegelden aan, de wiskunde en wetenschappen van hun tijd. Etienne Vermeersch (1934) studeerde klassieke filologie en wijsbegeerte aan de Universiteit Gent. Hij doceerde er diverse filosofische vakken en was ook vicerector. Hij publiceerde ondermeer De ogen van de Panda en Van Antigone tot Dolly. In 2008 werd hij door Knack verkozen tot meest invloedrijke intellectueel in Vlaanderen. Johan Braeckman (1965) studeerde wijsbegeerte en menselijke ecologie aan de Universiteit Gent, de Vrije Universiteit Brussel en de University of California. Hij doceert aan de Universiteit Gent en was ‘Socrates hoogleraar’ aan de Universiteit van Amsterdam. Hij publiceerde boeken over bio-ethiek, Darwin en de evolutietheorie.

READING: Media Computing: Computational Media Aesthetics is an essential reference for both professional and academic researchers in the fields of content management, media analysis, video indexing, video annotation, semantic indexing, MPEG-7, and multimedia systems. It will also be of interest to those working in signal processing, image processing, computer vision, audio analysis, and speech processing. With the explosion of digital media and online services, a key challenge is the automation of content annotation, indexing and organizing for efficient media access, retrieval and browsing. Today, a major failing of automated media annotation systems is the semantic gap - the incompatibility between the low-level features that can be computed now to describe media and the high-level meaning sought by user queries in search for audio and video. This book explores the new area of computational media aesthetics to bridge the semantic gap. It brings together researchers from multiple disciplines, from computer scientist to content creators from engineers to media specialists, to highlight recent advances in this area. It examines the elements of media production and aesthetics principles in order to establish the foundation for semantics indexing, and to build innovative and effective technologies for content annotation, search, and browsing. Media Computing: Computational Media Aesthetics outlines strategic means and methods to derive high level semantic constructs from automatic analysis of media. It is suitable for the use as a text in courses on multimedia and informational retrieval.

READING: The women featured in these stories have one thing in common: Theyre having a terrible day. Theres the housewife so entranced by the pristine order of her neighbors belongings that she cant stop herself from breaking into their home. Theres the mother easing her young son through the trauma of a murder, suddenly confronted with the reappearance of his father. Theres the vulnerable middle-aged woman stuck in a coffee-chain job alongside snotty college kids, the talent manager supervising a corral of misguided young stars, and the spiky-haired artist who literally dumps her slacker fiance—from a moving car—and moves angrily through Vegas, hitting the bars and casinos before engaging in an ill-advised fling with a sleazy player named Ramon. Janice Shapiro has created a cast of utterly distinct outsiders, yet her earthy warmth and asymmetrical humor so suffuse the stories that they surge with a collective voice, and the readers experience is that of getting to know a group of close-knit but independent friends. Shapiros gift for pitch-perfect dialogue—along with her instinctual ease in writing about such fraught topics as commercial sex, death, and the everyday tragedies of growing older—makes her voice one to be relished: tough-minded, sardonic, intimate, and free.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: The Radio Eye: Cinema in the North Atlantic, 1958–1988, examines the way in which media experiments in Quebec, Newfoundland, the Faroe Islands, and the Irish-Gaelic-speaking communities of Ireland use film, video, and television to advocate for marginalized communities and often for “smaller languages.” The Radio Eye is not, however, a set of isolated case studies. Author Jerry White illustrates the degree to which these experiments are interconnected, sometimes implicitly but more often quite explicitly. Media makers in the North Atlantic during the period 1958–1988 were very aware of each other’s cultures and aspirations, and, by structuring the book in two interlocking parts, White illustrates the degree to which a common project emerged during those three decades. The book is bound together by White’s belief that these experiments are following in the idealism of Soviet silent filmmaker Dziga Vertov, who wrote about his notion of “the Radio Eye.” White also puts these experiments in the context of work by the Cuban filmmaker and theorist Julio García Espinosa and his notion of “imperfect cinema,” Jürgen Habermas and his notions of the “public sphere,” and Édourard Glissant’s ideas about “créolité” as the defining aspect of modern culture. This is a genuinely internationalist moment, and these experiments are in conversation with a wide array of thought across a number of languages.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: When a filmmaker makes a film with herself as a subject, she is already divided as both the subject matter of the film and the subject making the film. The two senses of the word are immediately in play – the matter and the maker—thus the two ways of being subjectified as both subject and object. Subjectivity finds its filmic expression, not surprisingly, in very personal ways, yet it is nonetheless shaped by and in relation to collective expressions of identity that can transform the cinema of 'me' into the cinema of 'we'. Leading scholars and practitioners of first-person film are brought together in this groundbreaking collection to consider the theoretical, ideological, and aesthetic challenges wrought by this form of filmmaking in its diverse cultural, geographical, and political contexts.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: The Tactile Eye expands on phenomenological analysis and film theory in its accessible and beautifully written exploration of the visceral connection between films and their viewers. Jennifer M. Barker argues that the experience of cinema can be understood as deeply tactile—a sensuous exchange between film and viewer that goes beyond the visual and aural, gets beneath the skin, and reverberates in the body. Barker combines analysis of embodiment and phenomenological film theory to provide an expansive description of cinematic tactility. She considers feminist experimental film, early cinema, animation, and horror, as well as classic, modernist, and postmodern cinema; films from ten national cinemas; and work by Chuck Jones, Buster Keaton, the Quay Brothers, Satyajit Ray, Carolee Schneemann, and Tom Tykwer, among others.

Genre History
ISBN 9789460037818
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Het jaar 1968 behoort tot de iconische jaren van de twintigste eeuw. Het is een kanteljaar, waarin alles mogelijk lijkt. 1968 is het jaar van de Meirevolutie in Parijs, de Praagse Lente, het verzet tegen de oorlog in Vietnam, het bloedbad van My Lai, de moorden op Martin Luther King en Robert Kennedy, de Yippies bij de Democratische conventie in Chicago, de zwarte handschoenen bij de Olympische Spelen in Mexico en Amsterdam als 'magies centrum'. Over de hele wereld komen jongeren in opstand tegen de gevestigde orde. De protesten worden gevoed door het ideaal van een andere samenleving en het geloof in de nieuwe mens. Ze gaan gepaard met psychedelische experimenten, harde strijd en emancipatiebewegingen van zwarten en vrouwen. Bevrijding is het sleutelwoord. Maar 1968 eindigt als een jaar van restauratie: de bestendiging van de regering van president De Gaulle in Frankrijk, de Sovjetinval in Tsjecho-Slowakije en de verkiezing van Richard Nixon in de Verenigde Staten. Desondanks hebben de culturele, maatschappelijke en politieke invloeden van 1968 nu, een halve eeuw later, niets aan betekenis ingeboet. In dit enerverende, kleurrijke boek neemt Roel Janssen, die in mei 1968 naar Parijs trok om getuige te zijn van de studentenrevolte, de lezer mee op een wereldreis door het revolutiejaar. Het is een gedreven journalistiek verslag dat de gebeurtenissen van vijftig jaar geleden in perspectief plaatst en de herinneringen aan dat veelbewogen jaar levend houdt. 'You Say You Want a Revolution', een verwijzing naar de hit van The Beatles in 1968, onderscheidt zich door een spannende verteltrant vol smakelijke details en oog voor de zelfoverschatting van de generatie van '68.

READING: While illustrated by Buffalo in particular, this book examines a broader phenomenon: the identity of those cities that were built and blossomed during the late 19th and early 20th century and are now in different stages of decline and disintegration. Bringing together a range of scholars from the humanities, the social sciences, art and architecture, this volume looks at both the literal city image and urban representation generated by photographs, video, historical and contemporary narratives, and grass-root initiatives. It investigates the notion of agency of media in the city and, in return, what the city’s agency is.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: "From 1950, increasing numbers of Aboriginal and Māori women became nationally or internationally renowned. Few reached the heights of international fame accorded Evonne Goolagong or Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, and few remained household names for any length of time. But their growing numbers and visibility reflected the dramatic social, cultural and political changes taking place in Australia and New Zealand in the second half of the twentieth century. This book is the first in-depth study of media portrayals of well-known Indigenous women in Australia and New Zealand, including Goolagong, Te Kanawa, Oodgeroo Noonuccal and Dame Whina Cooper. The power of the media in shaping the lives of individuals and communities, for good or ill, is widely acknowledged. In these pages, Karen Fox examines an especially fascinating and revealing aspect of the media and its history -- how prominent Māori and Aboriginal women were depicted for the readers of popular media in the past."--Publisher's description.
