Book News Annotation:

As the second edition of this book added coverage of video to the discussion of film, so this third edition now includes extensive discussion of digital technologies in order to provide video makers with guidance on the best tools and techniques for recording, editing, and displaying their work. The authors (who have both taught filmmaking at Harvard U.) provide advice for every stage and aspect of a video production, from understanding materials and equipment through the shoot itself and on to editing, production, and distribution.
