"The reader can discern that the concepts they are reading about are tried and true professional practices-not just something a scholar has dreamt up on his own."
Dr. Joey Goodsell, University of Alabama, USA
"This is the ideal book for the 21st century."
Dr. Osabuohien P. Amienyi, Arkansas State University, USA
"Overall the information relating to television production contained in the handbook is spot-on, good, valid information clearly presented with plenty of relevant pictures and illustrations. I particularly like the broadening of the information to embrace webcasts, streaming, etc... Also, I enjoyed the inclusion of quotes from a variety of sources within the industry (especially well-known/famous names) which both enlivens the text and broadens the interest generated for each subject."
Tony Grant, Producer/Director, Director of Photography, Lighting Camera, UK
"The textbook provides an exceptional analysis of the art and craft of television and video production.Its real strength is in its excellent practical advice on how to actually create video productions."
Steven Keeler, Division Chair, Cayuga Community College, USA
"This is well-written to appeal to a new student of production. The language is simple and direct, and any "jargon” is clearly defined right away."
Phil Hoffman, University of Akron, USA
"The text reads well. Simple short paragraphs that do not fill the page with superfluous details."
Frederick P. Burger, Monroe Community College, USA
"Jim Owens and Gerald are to be commended on a very thorough explanation of the entire production industry. I don't think any stone has been left unturned. I'll wager there is more information in this book than a student would get in four years of school. It really is well done. In fact, it should be required reading even a lot of people who already 'work' in the industry."
Doug Jensen, Vortex Media, USA
