Be it live action, animation, narrative or abstract, from a two pic gif to a feature length film, Penny argues that each stage of the filmmaking process can be informed and improved by applying principles of design. Principles such as structure, tone, composition, scale, symmetry, shape, tone, colour hierarchy, typography, pace and rhythm. Lets have a quick look through.
As former course leader and senior lecturer in the design school at LCC, Penny draws on her experience of teaching emerging filmmakers. Work from the best of them features in the book and sits sitting alongside the work of some of cinemas greatest directors.
Divided into three parts, the book sets out all the relevant stages where the principles of design can have the most impact on your work.
