I definitely recommend this book! I recently returned from a vacation with some friends, and we wanted to take our HOURS of videos and make them into something worth watching. The book taught us how to edit the videos down to a manageable size...basically, we cut out the boring stuff! I had never used a computer editing program before. If I could figure this stuff out, believe me--you can! :)

This thick book is filled with ALOT of technical terms and references to things that I will never do with my home movies. If you just want to learn some basic techniques for shooting better home videos, skip this book. The advice is not very practical. For instance, I wanted to know step-by-step how to take better shots, not "avoid panning too much." Still there is some useful information. But if all you want to do is make better home movies, check out John Fuller's Make Fantastic Home Videos. In a short amount of time, he tells you exactly how to shoot home movies just like the pros do it. It is just a much more practical book and not quite as "theory oriented" as this one.

AS PROGRAM DIRECTOR OF EDUCATION FOR A LARGE METROPOLITAN NEW YORK COMPANY THIS BOOK IS ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED READING FOR EMPLOYEES DOING EDUCATIONAL TRAINING VIDEO RECORDING AND EDITING. IT IS EASY TO UNDERSTAND, COMPREHENSIVE AND THOPROUGH. I GIVE IT A FIVE STAR RATING.

I got this book because the guy who sold me my video recorder recommended it. In it, I found everything I was looking for, plus some things that I probably wouldn't have thought of. Overall, very useful.
