About the Book:

What the Pros Know and the Manuals Don't Tell You....

Whether you spent $200 or $20,000 on your camera, Digital Video Secrets will give you what you need to get a great look. 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.

Here are 107 easy-to-apply digital video shooting secrets that "everyone knows" but no one will tell you. Digital Video Secrets 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.
