As someone who orders a lot of books and then reads and highlights the first chapter, then puts them on a shelf, I was glad that I was actually able to read this entire book. Most of it is very useful information, and best of all no extra padding. Shows a lot of respect for the reader's intelligence.
Definitely one of the best books I've found on making films, out of at least fifty I've read. This is the actual logistics, for instance how to move the camera and how to transition between shots, AND extremely simple explanations of why that way works when other ways don't work as well.
Great hand-drawn illustrations and visual explanations, sort of a 1980's style, though the information is more up to date.
Should be essential reading for anyone who wants to get involved in film-making or wants to understand how films work. Highly recommended!
The book's table of contents lists eight sections:
· Basics (such as camera functions, lenses, depth of field)
· Basic Sequence
· Screen Direction
· Camera Moves
· Doing It (how to plan for a shoot)
Each section is covered concisely, and there are over 200 simple, but effective, black and white line art illustrations to accompany the topic being discussed. This book is perfect for the person who wants to concentrate on improving their video camera operating skills.

A classic. Really bare bones. No fancy photos or spectacular images, just simple diagrams and drawings, but a solid base for filmmakers or videographers. Read morePublished 17 months ago by silvermind,
