Video Production is a comprehensive textbook designed to meet the needs of undergraduate and postgraduate degree and diploma students of mass communication courses. The book is a step-by-step guide on making effective video programmes and provides an in-depth coverage of all aspects of video production – pre-production, production, and post-production. Throughout the book, the key concepts are explained through numerous illustrations, exhibits, figures, exercises, 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. 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.
