I have this kind of pages on all my sites and I have no time to follow my plans. There are some "publishing projects" into making for years. The textbooks, for instance. Every time I image what do I have to do in order to quote or have references... I lose all interest...
I thought that webpages somehow will grow into "webooks" -- I was wrong. They grow, but into something else. Any printed book has define structure and web-texts are fluid, fragmented, more for seeing than reading. Maybe this is the new way, maybe I am too disorganized, but the two mediums are too different.
Publishing sources for academic manuscripts.
This page is for myself, but you are welcome to make use of it.
Well, publishing is tricky -- with the "web-publishing" (that is what I do by typing this sentence right now) the print publications do lose the monopoly. In fact, a CD is more usefull than a printed text (my students' vote).
But I love books...
I'll... I'm working on textbooks -- visit my hyper-linked class pages...I'm about to give up on webpages! They take so much time! I will put together a textbook proposal for Film & Video Directing, the class I teach. Only the basics on Film-Mind, leaving the specifics to the existing textbook on filmmaking.Text and Academic Authors
There several obvious parts: Text, Camera, Mise-en-Scene, Montage... simply to follow the Eisenstein's topics. Leaving out working with actors and production aspect all together.
But the real exercises must be on manipulating SPACE and TIME by the director. Director's Chronotope -- what is to be done with the camera and in front of the camera and how to put together what we got in order to produce the effect we are looking for.
The way of tracking back from the screen to shooting. Go for "reconstruction" of shot from any famous film.
This is the first step -- How It Was Done.
The second -- How To Do It.
