Video Communication & ProductionVideo Warriors: Creating Hot Graphics with Cool 3DPremiere 6 For Macintosh & Windows

Video Communication & Production
Jim Stinson (2002, The Goodheart-Willcox Company Inc.,, 350 pages, $44)

This textbook is just the ticket for teachers looking for a manual. Beautifully crafted with easy to read text, color photographs and detailed illustrations, Video Communication & Production covers everything from soup to nuts in the world of video production. Although this book is clearly designed for use in the classroom, all videographers will find that it contains an abundance of information to reinforce their knowledge.

The book's first two chapters should get novices' video-production pursuits up and running. The following chapters hone in on video production, covering camcorder systems and operation, lighting, audio, composition, program content, editing and more.

Although no literature can replace hands-on training, when it comes to video production, this book gives a very good overview of the production process. Rating 5
