OK - this is my (one and only) pitch for my product. Then I'll get down to posting questions and trying to help others with their queries.
Having been a film making teacher for over 30 years and also running a successful video business I finally wrote a textbook on Digital Video Production.
It covers everything technical (lights, camera, editing, etc.) as well as directing, scripting and software choices.
Looking for a good read with lots of pictures and illustrations? Go to Learn How to Make a Film | Digital Video Production & Video Editing Production.
Ok - now . . . I'm off to the other forum topics!
