How to Film

as an amateur

by G. Wain

Focal Press, 1949, [First Edition], black and white illustrations, paperback

Good Condition, some edge and shelf wear, some rubbing and bumping to edges and corners, one or two pages have notes in margins, no inscriptions, foxing to edges (see photographs)

Making amateur films is quite easy.   You push the button and the film does the rest, as the advertisements like to say.  But if you want to make sure that your pictures will come out sharp, are well exposed, don’t wobble on the screen, are the right length and make sense without your having to explain them – well then, you had better learn just a little bit more about it.  G. Wain puts here all you need into a nutshell, into a very full nutshell indeed.  The choice of the camera, its handling, the use of little tricks, making titles, processing your own film, is admirably summed up and so are even the elements of script writing, directing and editing.”
