Reviews - What do customers think about Cameras in Narnia: How The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe Came to Life?

An in-depth book worth buying...  May 16, 2006
I have enjoyed looking at this book so far, it appears to have a lot of good information for aspiring filmmakers. I would like to point out, though, that the book is quite small! I was very surprised when I opened up my package to find a book the size of a DVD case. The description this site gives does say that it is that size (in inches), but I never read that part - and I doubt that a whole lot of other people do either. I expected it to be big like the Illustrated Movie Companion (also a fantastic book!). So, just know ahead of time if you buy this book that it will be kind of small - but still easy to read. I would personally recommend buying it used, because $9.72 is a lot (especially when you might be able to get it for around $3). Enjoy!
 
Very Good book for a budding Movie-maker  Mar 26, 2006
This Narnia book has a lot of technical information, like how a lot of things are done in movie-making and how many lights were used in the making of the Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe. It doesn't have many interviews with the cast, but would be great for an aspiring movie-maker.

A Note from thge Author
As this book has no synopsis I thought I would add one so you know more what it is about.
Ian Brodie, Wanaka, New Zealand

Synopsis
An essential guide to the filming in New Zealand of one of the most hotly anticipated movies of all time. The first of the CS Lewis Chronicles of Narnia to be made into a movie is The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and has been filmed and produced in New Zealand by Disney and Walden Media, with Kiwi director Andrew Adamson. Ian Brodie has been on set and on location throughout its production, and has documented the making of the film from behind the cameras, with interviews with the director and key crew members. Using this movie as a specific example, he explains in layman's terms the magical process of turning a much-loved classic of children's literature into a blockbuster movie. Through the latest Computer Generated Imaging techniques, the fabulous creatures of Narnia will astound viewers and this book explains how Aslan and Mr Tumnus were created, and why the centaurs look so real. Dolly grips, gaffers, clapperloaders and best boys are explained, and the process of making a movie documented with over 200 full-colour movie and behind-the-camera images, nearly all of them exclusive to this book.
This will be a valuable teaching tool and a superb record of a much-loved movie, with anecdotes and information to delight in equal measure.
