I am using this book to teach beginning filmmaking to junior and senior high school students It is well written and organized with plenty of suggestions for making the class fun and effective I especially appreciate the authors emphasis on the hard work required to pull off your shorts , or to make a decent short film Anyone who reads this book and applies it to their video projects will stand far above the amateurs posting junk to YouTube that no one really wants to watch Most chapters have exe [...]



    2. Useful information with many examples However, a lot of information was out of date which may be my fault for waiting a year or two before reading it I feel like it was focused on people who already have a bit of experience in film I feel like that at times the book would feel a little forceful about buying certain equipment and being able to have a ton of people help you on the project.

    5. Steven Spielberg started his directing career when he was twelve by shooting a 9 minute Western on 8 mm film He made films of crashing his train set, and sold tickets for 25 cents his sister sold popcorn I remember going to see DAY FOR NIGHT when I was 20, knowing this, and thinking, If only I d seen this when I was young, it would have got me started in the film business Monkeying around with 8 mm was a pain in the ass The film is 8mm wide, i.e each frame is much smaller than your fingernail im [...]

    7. I bought this book first because I am a college writing professor who has his students make short films inspired by writing they have done during the semester I thought compared to other filmmaking books, this one would focus on giving practical tips without having to spend a lot of money It was great for that Many of my students will make their films with iPhones and iMovie The book does recommend spending a few thousand dollars on a camera So it s a good book for low budget, and the writers do [...]


    8. I am a teenager and I LOVE to film my own visual creations This book puts it in perspective giving you budgets and equipment tips it is really good for your book shelf This book is not a book that would be an action fantasy its a informational text It can be a page turner if it is what you enjoy if it is not what you enjoy than don t pick up this book But I would defiantly suggest it for young filmmakers that need to just get on the right footing and get your movies done.


    9. This is an excellent how to book for anyone interested in making a movie It s geared towards teenagers and focuses on how to make an excellent short film 5 minutes that will stand apart from typical home movies It has lots of practical advice from the beginning concepts, through screenplays, filming, editing, and even promoting your film This would be a perfect text book for a high school film production class.


    10. A great quick and dirty survey of film techniques It s also a really good no nonsense guide to planning very important and executing your short film What a script looks like, adaptation of ideas into script format, making proper storyboards, basic lighting and sound it s all in this little book You burn through the whole thing, and then you reread it several times, each slower than the last Then you know which elements to learn about.


    11. Great source for everything you need to know about writing, pre production, filming, and post for you first shorts Easy and fun to read, with lots of very helpful examples and visuals Highly recommend.


    12. Very readable, not very condescending treatment of the subject for teens I can imagine it being useful for its intended audience Certainly gives a sense of the scale of teamwork, coordination, and effort needed to create a film narrative.


    13. I picked this up at my library There s some good stuff here This book was published ten years ago, so some of the equipment advice is outdated, but still good I doubt I will be following all their advice, but it started me pondering certain details.


    14. Despite the author s condescending tone, this book features some really useful information and suggestions It would make a good introductory text for a high school filmmaker s class or camp.



    15. great intro to filmmaking especially for low and zero budget works has some good pieces of advice regarding making your first film and the problems you may face still an amateur level.
