Digital Video Secrets
by Tony Levelle
What the Pros Know and the Manuals Don’t Tell You
Whether you spent $200 or $20,000 on your camera, this book will give you what you need to get a great look.
Here are 107 easy-to-apply digital video shooting secrets that “everyone knows” but no one will tell you. This is a “cheat sheet” for every filmmaker. It is loaded with practical, ready-to-use information that will improve the quality of your shooting from day one.
Inspired by such available light and low-budget films as Robert Rodriguez’s El Mariachi and Jon Jost’s Frameup, filmmaker Tony Levelle sets out on a mission to tell you how to do the same. Besides writing hundreds of corporate instructional manuals and making dozens of videos, Levelle recently co-authored (with Dorothy Fadiman) the book Producing with Passion: Making Films That Change the World.
