“Techniques of the Moving Image” will publish engagingly written and very accessible books that explore the relationship between what we see onscreen when we go to the movies and the technical achievements undertaken in filmmaking to make this possible.  Each volume (single-authored, and roughly one hundred thousand words long) will explore some defined aspect of cinema--work from a particular era, work in a particular genre, work by a particular filmmaker or team, work from a particular studio, or work on a particular theme--in light of some technique and/or technical achievement.  Some historical background and social contextualization is welcome.  Technical achievements and techniques that could be discussed include, among others, cinematography, direction, acting, lighting, costuming, set design, legal arrangements, agenting, scripting, sound design and recording, and sound or picture editing.  Typically, books will give in-depth examination to a reasonable but not excessive number of films.
