    Great for Family Videos Too

    I have to sit through a lot of home movies over the years and am tired of the same shakey hand scenes and zooms that leave me with motion sickness. Now that I am the family film maker I looked for a book with a few techniques that would improve the quality in any way. This book has lots of techniques, many require cranes and booms that I do not own - but a lot are easy enough to do with a tripod and a somewhat steady hand. In combination with the home video software, its possible to make a home movie that is more interesting to watch - albeit with the same old birthday scenes. This book was just the ticket - not too complex and filled with examples from popular movies.

    This book rules!

    For anyone who doesn't know how they want to compose their video or film project, this book has pretty much everything you'll want to know for more creative shots, as well as their technical terms so you don't run yourself dry in the mouth trying to describe it. Each shot is cited with a film reference where you can see it in action and how it helped to enhance the film. Unfortunately it doesn't tell you the technical elements of actually setting up the shots, but filmmaking is all about creativity anyway so do it yourself. If nothing else, it is a great quick reference guide.
