Television Production

by Gerald Millerson (Author), Gerald Millerson (Author), Jim Owens (Author)


Television Production offers you a very practical guide to professional TV and video production techniques. You will find straightforward description and explanations of the equipment you will use, and discover the best ways to use it. You will also learn how to anticipate and quickly overcome typical everyday problems.

You will explore in detail all the major features of television production, learning the secrets of top-grade camerawork, persuasive lighting techniques, effective sound treatment, as well as the subtle processes of scenic design and the art of video editing.

Successful program-making is about communication and persuasion.

This book tells you how to do all this - and much more.

Media Reviews
Television Production had been something of a 'technical bible' for television producers all over the world since it was first published in 1961 and is now, amazingly, in its 13th edition. It has been splendidly updated to include present day digital production techniques.
