Hi. I bought this amazing book on-line after reviewing some of its pieces on camera shots on Internet. This is an extremely useful, concise and complete book with all the images supporting the content when needed. I have finished it twice and tend to use it like a little bible for quick reference. Simply Awesome! Buying it like doing yourself a favour really. A must read for evey aspiring filmmaker. Thanks for sharing… from Manchester.

If you are interested in making movies this well thought out guide is a great place to begin. Full of great tips and advice: “..what you really need is a good idea. Then you need to take the time to work out how to turn the idea into a movie.” And this book does just that: guide you through the basics including planning, equipment, film language, shooting, lighting recording sound and editing. It’s concise, easy to read and well-illustrated and once you’ve done this ‘course’ you’ll be ready to fly!. Thank you Tom!

This book is great for teachers of film / tv who need ideas for lesson plans. The content is up to date and easy to understand. I originally bought this as an iPad app and then iBook. Well worth the purchase.

I like the .PDF and the contents. I took the printed pages and made it into a “flip-book”. this way I have a go-to reference during training and it lays flat so it is easy to use.

Other than a script and a camera, this book gives you everything you’d need to begin making films
