The projects he describes probably should have been included on a DVD with the book. However, I think all the videos are available on Hillman's website [[...]
This book is great inspiration for the aspiring (or frustrated) amateur filmmaker. It made me want to grab my camera and start shooting right away.
This is an insightful book in many regards. If you are looking for step by step instructions or ideas on how to set up Flash Video it says it all in about 1/6 of the back of the book. It tell not so much as how but why. Some may be surprised that he reads the Bible and lives in Grass Valley CA. part time.
I love the books interviews, insights, mistakes, and success stories. Very candid.
Great! You will see how simple the process is as well as learn why you should bother. You video guys heads up this is the way to go. Get Flash 8 Pro!
It's a bit refreshing to read a guy's perspective when it's not full of posturing and bravado. The author has a more self-nurturing tone and approaches the work with humility, which again isn't bad for a newbie.
The bottom line is: don't expect anything that is going to turn you into a video producer overnight. Admittedly, it's a hard profession, technical, requiring time, money and connections, and is very competitive. This is not a strong technical manual.
I have a BA in Film/Video and make educational videos/multimedia for a living, so my perspective is a bit skewed.
