Well organized by a professional with a wealth of experience, it covers pretty much everything needed to make great home movies. Starting with the most basic requirements and pointers, each of the nine chapters cover specific aspects of recording, from how it all works to the mundane things that aren¿t obvious at all until you¿re there and need them. The examples and advice are concrete, using a specific work that the author did as a point of focus and a vehicle for instruction. The glossary is invaluable for someone who has never done something like this (like me when I started), and the resource links make it easy to step beyond as practice and experience increases. It also serves as a reference book during the formative time when learning the techniques and tricks. Everything in the book has a purpose, but perhaps the best one is the lesson that all the effort the goes into making a movie is to tell a story which, if done well, will go beyond the mechanics of making it. Actually there are two more: Experiment and have fun. Well worth the investment for any newbie.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
