Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
If you’d like to do something serious with your digital camcorder, read -- and look at -- The Complete Guide to Digital Video. This full-color, oversize book is a complete course in digital moviemaking from folks who do it for a living. It covers equipment, software, preproduction, shooting, editing, FX, exporting, burning, webcasting, streaming, even copyright. And it gives you the story straight: tips, annoyances, workarounds, and just enough theory (but not too much!)

You’ll begin with the questions that ought to begin any project (for example, What am I trying to say? How am I trying to say it?) Ask these questions properly, says author Ed Gaskell, and they’ll ease you right into preproduction, by helping you identify the theme, look, and purpose of your video. You’ll learn what DV does well -- and not so well. You’ll find quick primers on everything from microphones to lenses, FireWire to MPEG formats.

Along with the stuff you expect (types of shots, framing, basic lighting, and so forth) you’ll find stuff you didn’t expect (for example, a practical, tip-rich introduction to Chromakey, the technique that puts your local weatherperson in front of her map.) After the shoot, you’ll find helpful guidance on sound effects (don’t pick just any gunshot noise, lots of folks know the difference). There are also some downright invaluable tips on saving your edit from disaster.

The best part: Ed Gaskell has rounded up interviews with folks who’ve shot everything from low-end music videos to Blair Witch. The interviews just ooze with knowledge. Bill Camarda

Bill Camarda is a consultant, writer, and web/multimedia content developer. His 15 books include Special Edition Using Word 2000 and Upgrading & Fixing Networks for Dummies, Second Edition.
