New Digital Cinema - Reinventing the Moving Image
Publisher: WallFlower Press
This introduction to contemporary digital cinema tracks its intersection with video art, music video, animation, print design and live club events to create an avantgarde for the new millennium. It begins by investigating digital cinema and its contribution to innovations in the feature-film format, examining animation and live-action hybrids, the gritty aesthetic of the Dogme 95 filmmakers, the explosions of frames within frames and the evolution of the ‘ambient narrative’ film. This study then looks at the creation of new genres and moving-image experiences as what we know as ‘cinema’ enters new venues and formats.
