Book about Scene setups..

I know there is a book about, how to setup a scene with actors (or CG Characters) an cameras to get a certain impression. For static an moving cameras.

Maybe someone of you knows what book I mean. Sorry, title and author unknown.

I'm not sure what book you mean but I have a book that i found to be very helpfull with setting up your shots. Which just so happens to be called "Setting Up Your Shots"
Now the reviews there's are so spectacular, but i feel it's a must have for anyone who wants to find a camera shot that wants to define a mood. Very easy read, and it references popular movies for reference. Now it's not indepth on cinematography at all. Just basic camera moves. So if you decide you might want it, make sure you go over to your local bookstore and browse through it first.
Hope that helps.

Ill have a look anyway, but more suggestions are welcome.

The only book you need is "Shot by shot". A great in depth resource.

Shot by Shot and Digital Cinematography & Directing are both really good books on this subject and they should contain all you need. These are ones I use in my classes on Scriptwriting and Storyboarding.

"Shot by Shot" is great, as a matter of fact it never leaves by back pack. it has post-it notes everywhere, highlighter and scibbles throughout!
Also right next to it is "the Five C's of Cinematoraphy" equally as weathered.

two others that I like but don't carry around like a big geek are
"Narration in the Ffiction Film" and "the Art of Technique"
they are a little more wordy that the previously mentioned books but are full of great observation and examples.

Also, look into finding anything by Bruce Block. He is a sort of behind the curtian kind of guy
doing a lot of directorial consulting for actors turned directors( you really htink they do it themselves?). A a real Hollywood insider and well kept secret.
I have taken his classes and he changed the way I watch films and create art!

That's it!

Ha! I just checked Amazon! Bruce has a book, I missed that one. Get it Get it NOW!!
seriously go now and get it!


go




really

Don't forget Cinematic Motion (follow up to Shot by Shot)

Also look into Setting Up Your Shots: Great Camera Moves Every Filmmaker Should Know. It's a good reference to have when you're constructing your shots & storyboards.

I always thought that setting up your shots was kind of cheesy.
I don't think there is anything in there that shot by shot doesn't have.
I'll admit it is a little more palletable for the visual types like us. More pictures less words.
I would reccomend both not just setting up your shots.

Reading screenplays is good too.
