Product description

Review

"Stockman has packed a veritable film school between the pages of this highly informative, yet entertaining book. Very highly recommended."

--Videomaker Magazine

"Great tips from a video expert."

--PC World

"Whip-smart and funny... teaches readers how to think about film and reveals the why and when behind techniques; there is next to zero tech or tool talk."

--Library Journal

"His simple-to-follow guide takes readers step-by-step through the film- and video-making process"

--Kirkus Reviews



"Like two years of film school in 248 pages. I've been in the movie biz for twenty-five years and I still learned a ton from Steve Stockman's How to Shoot Video That Doesn't Suck. I guess that means either I'm pretty dumb or Steve is really smart."
--Steven Pressfield, Author of The War of Art and The Legend of Bagger Vance

"Stockman has packed a veritable film school between the pages of this highly informative, yet entertaining book. Very highly recommended."

"His simple-to-follow guide takes readers step-by-step through the film- and video-making process"
--Kirkus Reviews

"It's all in here--family video, business video. . . even college application videos. What's not in here? A bunch of technical stuff nobody understands. We can all shoot video on our smart phones or digital cameras--the question is, can we shoot video that doesn't suck?"
--Joe McCambley, Co-founder/Creative Director, The Wonderfactory

"The odds are good that some of you suck at video. . . Steve is one of the smartest media minds in the game. This book is the perfect gift for any would-be filmmaker with the need to suck. . . less."
--Rob Barnett, Founder/CEO, www.MyDamnChannel.com

"Stockman skipped past all the technical crap about how to use a camera and cut right to the chase: how do you shoot a video somebody else will WANT to watch? The only thing missing is a time machine so I could reshoot fifteen years of sucky birthday party and school play videos."
--David A. Goodman, Executive Producer/Head Writer of Family Guy
