Publisher Comments:

Since the dawn of film, novices and experts have used quick-and-dirty workarounds and audiovisual tricks to improve their motion pictures, from home movies to feature films. Today, the tools have certainly changed, as have the quality and scope of the results. With digital video, the hacking possibilities are now limitless, for both amateurs and professional artists. From acquiring footage, mixing, editing, and adding effects to final distribution, Digital Video Hacks provides unique tips, tools, and techniques for every stage of video production. You'll learn how to:

  • Get your projects started right using creative preparation tools and techniques, from making your own steadicam, boom, or dolly to effective storyboarding, timecoding, and tape labeling
  • Troubleshoot common shooting problems, including using stop-motion and time-lapse techniques, lighting effects, colored screens and gels, and household objects to establish mood or otherwise wow an audience
  • Create stunning visual effects, such as satellite zooming, surreal scenes, Matrix-like bullet-time, and green screen illusions
  • Fool your audience with audio tricks, replacing flubbed dialogue, smoothing over cuts, and covering missing audio with room tone
  • Add professional features with post-production tricks, including color correction, soundtrack cleanup, opening sequences, and DVD bookmarks
  • Distribute final content in a variety of creative ways, from exporting to basic videotape or DVD to streaming over the internet or even via cell phone
  • Use the web to provide interactivity and dynamic content, attend a remote conference, or vlog your life.

Whether you're looking for a new technique to include in your next project, a solution to a common problem, or just a little inspiration, this book reintroduces you to the digital video you only thought you knew.

Synopsis:

From shooting footage to mixing, editing, and distribution, our new guide provides amateur and professional digital video artists with unique tips, tools and techniques for every stage of video production--a must for anyone serious about DV. With exquisite, full-color photos throughout, our new hacks book presents a collection of tips, tricks, and techniques for digital video that go well beyond the basics. In fact, many of the book's unique preparation tools, post-production tricks, and creative solutions to common shooting problems can't be found anywhere else. That's because these hacks are gleaned from professionals who learned by experimenting. Some of their techniques were gained through trial and error, others by fiddling with DV applications and equipment.
