A note from the author
Let me start with a confession. When I started making videos, I made just about every mistake that’s it's possible to make! I could have avoided a lot of frustration if I had had just a bit of good advice. that’s where this guide comes in. I want this to be the book I should have read the day I bought my first camcorder.
The background to this book is that after spending many years with a passion for photography, I set myself the challenge of trying to make wildlife films using a run of the mill, home camcorder. Having learnt many lessons and made many mistakes, I now find that I am often asked questions by people who watch my films. Mostly people want to know what sort of camera to use, or what editing programme to buy. I try and respond to everyone with as much advice as I can. Those answers form the backbone of this guide. My wildlife films are now widely watched on the internet and I have a good idea of the many easy steps you can take to save money, make better videos and have fun doing it. My website of photographs and wildlife films also has videos and tips to compliment this book. Wildaboutfilms.com .
