I highly recommend both of these books for pro's and entry level film makers!
The text will walk you though how to set up the shots and the pictures and screen grabs show are amazing references.
Honestly if you've read the first book it's more of the same in this one...BUT in this case that's a good thing.
I read Volume 3, and liked it so much that I ordered Volumes 1 and 2. I think there is a wealth of practical information, and these books are both educational and a good resource. Read morePublished 12 days ago by David J. Patterson
Very, very basic. Good for students who want to learn film language and grammer. Good use of examples for didactic purposes. I have recomended it to my first year students.Published 28 days ago by Phil deKanter
Simple and solid in its explanations and presentation, but really wishing the images were in color. Based on the covers in this series, was hoping for a clean and vivid detail. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Chase Wrenn

I love this series of books. The visual explanations and breakdown of shots is exactly what is called for. There's no need to verbally explain what can be easily shown. Read morePublished 15 months ago by danimal
