Editorial Reviews

From The Critics

"..arguably the best introductory text available on this subject"
Journal of Educational Television

"Ahh! A readable, accessible, clearly written guide to producing economical video programs for students, industrial and public educators, cable TV producers and hobbyists"
Communicator magazine—USA

"If you were to buy just one video making handbook, this volume should probably rate among the front-runners from which to choose. Put simply, it's excellent in every way"
Video Camera Magazine—Australia

"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

"This is the ideal book for the 21st century."
Dr. Osabuohien P. Amienyi, Arkansas State University

"Jim Owens and Gerald are to be commended on a very thorough explanation of the entire production industry."
Doug Jensen, Vortex Media, USA
