This thoughtful and beautifully produced book provides a comprehensive overview that is both philosophical and practical, addressing questions that range from ethics and collaboration to shooting in field settings to digital technology, to foundational questions about the value of such work. Faye Ginsburg, David B. Kriser Professor of Anthropology, Director, Graduate Program in Culture & Media at NYU

Filmmaking for Fieldwork is a sophisticated handbook that underscores the purpose, power, and techniques of ethnographic film - a timely and important contribution to visual anthropology and documentary film. Paul Stoller, author of Adventures in Blogging: Public Anthropology and Popular Media.

Designed for researchers seeking new ways to explore their field and media professionals aiming to extend their practice, this filmmaking handbook shows you how to plug into issues at the intersection of documentary cinema and ethnography. Exploring the unique potential for filmmaking to describe lifeworlds and the role of video editing in generating new ideas about human experience, it offers practical and theoretical advice for those making their first films. Based on over twenty years of teaching and industry experience, Filmmaking for fieldwork aims to inspire the development of core skills in camera use, sound recording and editing that can be applied to sensory, observational, participatory, reflexive and immersive modes of storytelling. Written for a multi-disciplinary audience, this book covers all stages necessary to produce a documentary film, from conception through to preparation, production, editing and distribution.

Thank you for your interest and I hope you enjoy the book! Andy

Andrew Lawrence Filmmaker and Senior Lecturer in Visual Anthropology University of Manchester
