A book that charts a journey across cinematic boundaries. Across filmed and imagined digital spaces, between the layers of fact and fiction from moving imagemakers redefining the rules of film.
The End of Celluloid is a book that will change the way you see film. Arguing that filmmaking is being superseded by a spectrum of moving image, it extends the range of what we think of as filmmaking. It explores the latest in digital film and new forms of 'advanced moving image', highlighting the most exciting and innovative examples of this entertainment.
It includes commentary on highly regarded filmmakers and those starting to make an impact who are influencing this next generation of filmmaking. The book presents an insight into these new styles infiltrating the mainstream, taking in film, animation, FMV and machinima (computer gaming animations), digital tv, pop promos, websites, PDA and PVP devices.
Unlike other books that look at these singular areas, The End of Celluloid joins the dots between these disciplines, offering visual cues and stimulation, with authoritative commentary suggesting directions for future and possible evolutionary paths.
