Editorial Reviews

Review

"As the world of film and video making evolves - seemingly at the speed of light - the importance of good guidance cannot be overestimated. Dave Lent's Video Rules, the first and most far-reaching guide to communicating in the Video Age, is a book in sync with its time. Brimming with career-empowering strategies for the aspiring filmmaker and timeless reminders for the seasoned pro, Video Rules is an absolute must-read." Jody Michelle Solis, Editor, StudentFilmmakers Magazine

"In this descriptive and illustrative how-to, Lent focuses on delivering practical knowledge to anyone interested in camerawork. Lent's expert tips for "how to work smart instead of hard" instruct readers on the importance of efficiency, stressing that one must break out of his or her comfort zone and work in a manner that maximizes quality while minimizing one's learning curve. Through this, Lent pushes the limits of even the most basic filmmaking enthusiast...providing readers with a vocabulary to succeed in the filmmaking industry."
-Giovanni LoMonaco, PDNEDU, The Magazine for Emerging Photographers and Photo Educators

"Most of us wouldarticulate more clearly and understand more deeply if we knew the basicgrammar, syntax and logic of video.  What Dave Lent presents here is astraight and simple path to video literacy and, with practice, videomastery. VIDEO RULES is a perfect text for video self-education andshould be offered in every American school."

-David Morash, Veteran Correspondent, ABC's Nightline
