The nine projects Hillman describes in this book, each between 60 seconds and 10 minutes long, draw from a wide variety of creative sources and take various forms - documentaries, music videos, a fictional short film, and a series of video portraits. Each one in unique, yet the goal is always the same: to capture in video the essence of his subject. Equal parts inspiration, instruction, and personal essay, Hillman Curtis on Creating Short Films for the Web offers an intimate look into the author's personal filmmaking process: from the ideas and influences that drive the concept and theme of the piece, through the setup, shoot, and assembly of a rough cut, to the final edit. Hillman explains how his flexible, often spontaneous filmmaking style is guided by certain principles - the value of leaving room for serendipity, the freedom found within self-imposed limitations, the importance of collaborating with others, and the possibilities for discovery and revision when reacting to unforeseen accidents. Throughout the book, Hillman offers advice on filmmaking's numerous elements, such as direction, sound editing, and interviewing. Also included is a primer to help you get up and running with your own digital video projects - explaining the equipment you'll need and providing an overview of the filmmaking process - and an appendix that guides you through building your own Flash video player.The nine projects Hillman describes in this book, each between 60 seconds and 10 minutes long, draw from a wide variety of creative sources and take various forms - documentaries, music videos, a fictional short film, and a series of video ...
