Format: Hardback Release Date: 26/10/2017

As its centenary year gets underway, ARRI looks back at its rich history, assesses the values and principles that have helped it reach this milestone anniversary, and sets its sights firmly on the future. 2017 marks 100 years since August Arnold and Robert Richter rented a small former shoemaker's store in Munich and set up shop as a film technology firm. The two young friends started with just one product: a copying machine they built on a lathe Richter ha d received as a Christmas present from his parents. Taking the first two letters of their surnames, they christened their new enterprise ARRI. Arnold and Richter were camera operators, film producers and an equipment rental outfit before they ever manu factured an ARRI camera. From the very beginning they worked directly with filmmakers and the insight they gained helped them to develop equipment that met real on - set needs. First and foremost they were film enthusiasts, driven by a love for visual storyt elling and technology. In today's industry, with technology driven at breakneck speed by marketing hype, this philosophy of listening to what filmmakers want - rather than telling them - is more The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has recogniz ed ARRI's engineers and their contributions to the industry with 19 Scientific and Technical Awards.

An understanding of the visual components will serve as the guide to strengthening the overall story. The Visual Story divides what is seen on screen into tangible sections: contrast and affinity, space, line and shape, tone, color, movement, and rhythm. The vocabulary as well as the insight is provided to purposefully control the given components to create the ultimate visual story. For example: know that a saturated yellow will always attract a viewer's eye first; decide to avoid abrupt editing by mastering continuum of movement; and benefit from the suggested list of films to study rhythmic control. The Visual Story shatters the wall between theory and practice, bringing these two aspects of the craft together in an essential connection for all those creating visual stories. Bruce Block has the production credentials to write this definitive guide. His expertise is in demand, and he gives seminars at the American Film Institute, PIXAR Studios, Walt Disney Feature and Television Animation, Dreamworks Animation, Nickelodeon Animation Studios, Industrial Light & Magic and a variety of film schools in Europe.
