    This book is fantastic

    A very layman explanation for making video that people actually want to watch. I've used his principles already to take what woud be boring home movies and made them entertaining for multiple facebook friends who wouldn't have cared. His advice has helped me significantly.

    Seriously check this book out if you like home movies or making movies for youtube...or if you're a serious movie maker and you want to improve your skills conceptualizing your content.

    Loved this book.

    more from this reviewer

    More people should read this book. I'm a reporter with a backgro

    More people should read this book. I'm a reporter with a background in photography and newspaper writing and video has been a pretty smooth transition because I follow the rules. This book has all the classic rules and more.

    In journalism, a lot of people are failing at video. Photographers make pretty montages of shots with no story line and writers have shaky video of talking heads that is way too long. This book should be sitting in every news room.

    Great book, very useful!

    It is put in layman's terms, very easy to read and you can understand what the author is trying to tell you. He gives a simple no-nonsense approach as to what you should be thinking about before, during and after the video shoot. Has a touch of humor and very personable.

    Nook version is buggy

    Will not open for me. I cannot get past the cover. It opens but when I try and turn the page, it flips back to the cover. I have archived it and reinstalled it several time but still cannot read it.
