Screen Media offers screen enthusiasts the analytical and theoretical vocabulary required to articulate responses to film and television. The authors emphasise the importance of 'thinking on both sides of the screen'. They show how to develop the skills to understand and analyse how and why a screen text was shot, scored, and edited in a particular way, and then to consider what impact those production choices might have on the audience. Stadler and McWilliam set production techniques and approaches to screen analysis in historical context. They demystify technological developments and explain the implications of increasing convergence of film and television technologies. They also discuss aesthetics, narrative, realism, genre, celebrity, cult media and global screen culture. Throughout they highlight the links between screen theory and creative practice. With extensive international examples, Screen Media is an ideal introduction to critical engagement with film and television.

It's set out in a unique, easy-to-read style that isn't all over bearing text. It displays the important facts up front so it is quick to access and the font size is useful for the late night study-goers. This textbook actually kept me intrigued as I didn't feel as though I was reading a textbook at all even though all the useful, factual information was still there. It's compact size was also advantageous as it was easy to throw in a bag or whatever. Makes life easier for a student. I rate this a 5/5 as far as textbooks go! (and it has nothing to do with the fact that my lecturer co-wrote it)

    A good textbook on screen media which understands that film, television and games are merging and so makes a point of citing all these as examples. The chapters are pretty concise and clearly written and the book doesn't drown in illustration which would bring the cost up.
