5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction for amateurs, 30 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The DV Rebel's Guide: An All-digital Approach to Making Killer Action Movies on the Cheap (Peachpit) (Paperback)
I feel as though I should be using the video-review option Amazon provides for this book, sadly though this book focuses almost entirely on action films (as the title obviously states)... if you're looking for information about the camera to use, how to set up your shots etc this isn't the book. It is however a great resource for creative ways to stretch your budget further.

One of the things the author has provided that's particularly helpful are references to hollywood films that provide excellent examples of the stuff the book teaches.

It is difficult to make a list of pros and cons but it boils down to this: if you want a book to help you make cheap practical and special effects and optimise your budget it's great, possibly unbeatable... if you want tips on being a film-maker you may want to look elsewhere.
