"Lancaster's Cinema Raw provides a great overview and history on the recent but densely complicated process of raw video shooting and capture."
- Jon Yi, 16mm and digital cinematography professor at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, www.jonathanyi.com
"Cinema Raw is essential for educators, students, and practitioners who want to understand new technologies and how to harness them for the kind of quality in our filmmaking that, until recently, was just a dream for those without the backing of millions of dollars in production support."
-Ellen Spiro, documentary film professor at the University of Texas, Austin; winner, The National Board of Review for Body of War; www.spirofilms.com
"Kurt Lancaster gets you where you need to be so you can make this incredible but complicated recording format work for you. He also tells you why it’s not for every job. With the essential knowledge found in Cinema Raw you will save hours, days, and possibly weeks of your time."
-Philip Bloom, filmmaker, www.philipbloom.net
