Learn to make movies like a professional

 

Its one thing to own a digital camera or camcorder. Its one thing to make shaky, home movies. Its another to record and edit a movie as good as what a professional would make using the same equipment. If youre like most people, slogging through a technical manual in search of answers is no answer. Enter Knack Digital Moviemaking.

 

With crystal-clear, step-by-step instructions and 400 full-color photographs, this book gives todays aspiring digital moviemakers—no matter what their subjects or budgets—the mindset, tools, and the inspiration to make exactly the films they want. It covers everything from scripting and character development to choosing and using a camera, from lighting and sound to casting actors, from shooting and editing to special effects. Animation is also addressed, as is getting the word out there and sharing and distributing your movie online, in theaters, and in festivals.

 

Knack Digital Moviemaking is a must for those seeking to produce their own home movies, business promotion or instructional videos, music videos, or even write their own script.
