    Hello.

    I was just wondering if anyone would know where I could find Technical Director cues in German. (Tighten up, Widen out, Tilt up, Tilt Down, Pan, Camera 1 your hot ect.) I have an internship set up in Germany in June. I can speak it well but I have no Idea on the proper lingo. Thanks! Mitch

    Try the website: new Theatre Words. I'm not sure if the book or online version would include camera operator instructions or not.

    Yeah, my guess is that Babel Fish won't help much, maybe try googling german film making tips, then translate them back into English to work out what word means what.
    Maybe try the German Google and TD cues? Just a guess,
    Nick

    Try searching "film satz" (film terms) or "film begriffe" (film phrases) at Google.de - it will pull up pages written (hopefully) by Germans.

    Then use www.google.com/translate to translate the pages.

    Finding someone who actually uses the terms would be 100 times better, though.
