The Complete Guide To Sony’s A6000 Camera

The Sony A6000 manual that comes with the camera is sadly lacking. This book gets into the "secrets" of the camera so an individual can get the most out of the functionality of the camera. I bought the black and white book as it was much cheaper than the color copy. Once you have the B&W version, there is on page ii of the book direction on getting a pdf copy from the author. Great book! Written for one of the best travel cameras...

Dark Shadows: Return To Collinwood

Dark Shadows: Return to Collinwood presents a look back at four decades of the successful spooky soap opera that made sympathetic vampire Barnabas Collins a pop culture phenomenon and prompted the big-budget, big-screen Warner Bros. revival starring longtime fan Johnny Depp, directed by Tim Burton, that premieres May 11, 2012. The large format book includes color photographs and behind-the-scenes anecdotes from Kathryn Leigh Scott an...

Scripting Hitchcock: Psycho, The Birds, And Marnie

It's appropriate that this book is well-written, considering that it begins at the ground-level where Hitchcock began when he made these three films: with the writers of Psycho, The Birds and Marnie. The reader feels brought into the very room in which Hitchcock collaborated with the writers (and tried to work with the ones he dismissed) to create each film from its roots: the scripts, that Hitchcock translated into movies with multi...

Dark Shadows (tv Milestones Series)

While supernatural events have become fairly commonplace on daytime television in recent decades, Dark Shadows, which aired on ABC between 1966 and 1971, pioneered this format when it blended the vampires, werewolves, warlocks, and witches of fictional Collinsport, Maine, with standard soap opera fare like alcoholism, jealousy, and tangled love. In this volume, author Harry M. Benshoff examines Dark Shadows, both during its initial r...

Killer Tapes And Shattered Screens: Video Spectatorship From Vhs To File Sharing

We have needed a book like this for decades: a new understanding of film spectatorship in light of home video. Caetlin Benson-Allott offers a smart and often unexpected reconsideration of watching movies on small screens that ingeniously brings together film theory, industrial history, and horror flicks, weaving a complex yet crystalline account. This ambitious book deserves to be a new foundational text. Since the mid-1980s, US audi...

Deadwood (tv Milestones Series)

By dramatizing the intersection of self-interested capitalism and foundational violence in a mining camp in 1870s South Dakota, the HBO series Deadwood reinvented the television Western. In this volume, Ina Rae Hark examines the groundbreaking series from a variety of angles: its relationship to past iterations of the genre on the small screen; its production context, both within the HBO paradigm and as part of the oeuvre of its crea...

Perry Mason (tv Milestones Series)

  Perry Mason was one of the most successful television programs from the 1950s and remains one of the most influential crime melodramas from any period. The show's influence goes far beyond its nine-year tenure (1957-66), the millions of dollars it generated for its creators and for CBS, and the definitive identification it provided its star, Raymond Burr. Perry Mason has become a true piece of Americana, evolving through a for...
