It’s packed with advice and inspiration from a wonderful array of industry experts (including Oscar-winning editor, Walter Murch and film director Edgar Wright). This 90-page guide caters for everyone whether you are getting to grips with your Christmas camcorder or an experienced film-maker planning your next digital short. The guide offers tips from the makers of BBC Video Nation, Director Beeban Kidron and animators from Aardman. There’s a gear guide, written by Digital Video's editor who picked out the best camcorders in the bunch, there is also tips on filming techniques, editing and sound advice, as well as a extensive listings catalogue at the back, with festival, forums and film course information.
