As a photographer I always assumed jumping over to movies would be a fairly logical step but after reading this book I now understand just how complex making a movie really is. There's a lot more to it than meets the eye. This book covered different types of story telling sequences, types of transitions, equipment, audio, and basically anything else you can think of that goes into a film. I will say that while these topics were all discussed this book is really just the tip of the iceberg. My favorite part of the book was that they pointed out specific scenes from popular movies to illustrate their examples and encouraged you to watch these films to look for what they were talking about. Now when I watch something I am looking for I learned in this book.
