The second edition of Video Production has been thoroughly revised to include a new chapter on Multimedia Production apart from a score of new topics combined with new images and anecdotes. Beginning with creating an understanding of visual grammar for video production, the book goes on to discuss the parts of a video camera, the roles of the personnel involved, and the three phases of video production-pre-production, production, and post-production. It moves from the conceptual to the practical-discussing in detail scriptwriting, lighting, sound, and editing; single-camera and multi-camera production processes; and the techniques involved in electronic news gathering and electronic field production. Video and broadcast techlogy and the various delivery options available in India and abroad are also discussed in detail.
