A few friends of mine, told me, that they do not have school books at university and most of their work is "hands on".
I'd like to learn this stuff too. However, it's hard to learn the craft, if I don't have access to the learning ressources (classes). If I, for example want to learn about Medicine, I can look up the curriculum online and order the accoarding book from the internet.
Now here is my question: Are books used to teach film at universities and if so, what books are most common used?
Is there a "bible", a book that has been read by most of the proffessionals, or one that they reference to? What is recommended for reading?
I know, this might differ, from Job to Job, but I'd like to get a broght understanding of all the different crafts involved as well as the pipeline.
This might sound oppinion based at first, but I'm asking about, what is actually used in colleges, universities and by proffessionls. However other book suggestions are welcome in the comments.
