' The handbook is eminently readable, thanks to a deeply personal tone that flows throughout the text. Collier is genuinely interested in steering doe-eyed filmmakers clear of potential pitfalls. In fact, his first chapter is skillfully arranged to guide traditional sprocket-heads through the zeros and ones of the DV format. The result is an unintimidating effect that drives readers further into the details.' Res: The Magazine of Digital Filmmaking
