The successful history of Pierre Angenieux's revolutionary zoom and focus technologies, a world reference in optics for cinema, photography and television. This book presents the history and current challenges of the Angenieux brand, a must in the world of cinema. Angenieux zooms are present on the most prestigious film shoots from Hollywood to Bollywood, from Moonlight to Game of Thrones, to name only a few. The incredible epic of this brand began in 1935 with Pierre Angenieux: inventor of the Retrofocus, father of the concept of modern zoom with mechanical compensation, Pierre Angenieux revolutionised focal calculation and deployed unparalleled inventiveness throughout his life, making his workshops of Saint-Heand in France a world reference in optics for cinema, photography and television. The Angenieux zooms have been distinguished three times in Hollywood by the Academy of Oscars in 1964, 1989 and 2008, and were selected by NASA to participate in the extraordinary adventure of the space conquest. The incredible achievement of Pierre Angenieux beyond the success of his company is the persistence of his work. The principles he has developed and applied remain the basis of Angenieux's vision. Today, backed by the Thales group since 1993, the Angenieux brand continues to offer the best technological solutions for cinematographic image.
Typography in film has come a long way since the days when studio-employed lettering artists hand-produced title cards for silent films. Today, with software like Adobe After Effects, just about anyone can create titles on a desktop computer--but that doesn't mean just anyone can produce great type for film or video! To do that, you need to know something about the intersection of type and film, how to come up with a concept, and the steps entailed in bringing that concept to fruition--all of which this full-color volume explains! In these pages, a master of the craft, designer Brian Diecks, talks to a collection of film and design world luminaries about the challenges they've faced (and the successes they've pulled off) in designing type for film and video. Each designer's story describes an assignment and then provides a detailed account of how a concept was arrived upon and executed. Gorgeous visuals highlight the discussions, and a portfolio of finished work is included on the DVD.
