Film Marketing is the first book to consolidate existing literature into a well informed and academically sound textbook. The book focuses on the film industry as a whole, which incorporates popular (mainstream) fiction films (usually) in English, non English language fiction films, documentary films and art house films. In doing so, it is firmly embedded in the global film industry.
Although the film industry is global, it is dominated by the Hollywood major studios, and as such, discussion of the Hollywood film industry will be highlighted. But, unlike other film marketing books on the market, this book also highlights other successful film industries, such as Korea, Nigeria and India, as well as looking at examples of film marketing practices from a range of other countries which provide interesting case studies from Denmark, France, the UK and Hong Kong.

Optical Diagnostics for Thin Film Processing
This volume describes the increasing role of in situ optical diagnostics in thin film processing for applications ranging from fundamental science studies to process development to control during manufacturing. The key advantage of optical diagnostics in these applications is that they are usually noninvasive and nonintrusive. Optical probes of the surface, film, wafer, and gas above the wafer are described for many processes, including plasma etching, MBE, MOCVD, and rapid thermal processing. For each optical technique, the underlying principles are presented, modes of experimental implementation are described, and applications of the diagnostic in thin film processing are analyzed, with examples drawn from microelectronics and optoelectronics. Special attention is paid to real-time probing of the surface, to the noninvasive measurement of temperature, and to the use of optical probes for process control.
Optical Diagnostics for Thin Film Processing is unique. No other volume explores the real-time application of optical techniques in all modes of thin film processing. The text can be used by students and those new to the topic as an introduction and review of the subject. It also serves as a comprehensive resource for engineers, technicians, researchers, and scientists already working in the field.
* The only volume that comprehensively explores in situ, real-time, optical probes for all types of thin film processing
* Useful as an introduction to the subject or as a resource handbook
* Covers a wide range of thin film processes including plasma etching, MBE, MOCVD, and rapid thermal processing
* Examples emphasize applications in microelectronics and optoelectronics

Film & Digital Techniques for Zone System Photography
Avid art photographers will learn how to model their work after legendary black-and-white photographer Ansel Adams in this instructional guide. Adams’ methodology, known as the Zone System, takes what the viewer will see—the final print—into consideration at the beginning of the photographic process, rather than focusing strictly on what the photographer sees. Once this concept, called “previsualization,” is presented and defined, the book then follows a step-by-step approach to incorporating these ideas into all aspects of the photographic process, including lighting, exposure, development or digital editing, and printmaking or output of digital images. Whether working in film or digital media, these steps will foster early accuracy and elicit better source material from a camera, which allows for greater control and contrast in the lab or on a printer.

Guy Austin's lucid and engaging account charts the making (and in some cases breaking) of the icons of French cinema, including such famous names as Catherine Deneuve, Gerard Depardieu, and Brigitte Bardot, as well as more recent stars like Beatrice Dalle, Emmanuelle Beart, and Samy Naceri.
