"Stockman has packed a veritable film school between the pages of this highly informative, yet entertaining book. Very highly recommended."
"Great tips from a video expert."
"Whip-smart and funny... teaches readers how to think about film and reveals the why and when behind techniques; there is next to zero tech or tool talk."
"His simple-to-follow guide takes readers step-by-step through the film- and video-making process"
"It’s all in here—family video, business video. . . even college application videos. What’s not in here? A bunch of technical stuff nobody understands. We can all shoot video on our smart phones or digital cameras—the question is, can we shoot video that doesn’t suck?”
—Joe McCambley, Co-founder/Creative Director, The Wonderfactory
“The odds are good that some of you suck at video. . . Steve is one of the smartest media minds in the game. This book is the perfect gift for any would-be filmmaker with the need to suck. . . less.”
—Rob Barnett, Founder/CEO, www.MyDamnChannel.com
“Stockman skipped past all the technical crap about how to use a camera and cut right to the chase: how do you shoot a video somebody else will WANT to watch? The only thing missing is a time machine so I could reshoot fifteen years of sucky birthday party and school play videos.”
—David A. Goodman, Executive Producer/Head Writer of Family Guy
“Like two years of film school in 248 pages. I've been in the movie biz for twenty-five years and I still learned a ton from Steve Stockman’s How to Shoot Video That Doesn't Suck. I guess that means either I'm pretty dumb or Steve is really smart.”
—Steven Pressfield, Author of The War of Art and The Legend of Bagger Vance

I got some good information but the author should have applied some of it to his writing, such as "shorter is better." Each chapter is full of "filler" that adds little. Read morePublished 7 days ago by NadoReviewer

Really does show you how to shoot video that doesn't suck. Good for just becoming a better videographer. Fun and easy read. Far to many Star wars references though.Published 18 days ago by Monique
