What people say:

"Jeremy Vineyard's Setting Up Your Shots ... provides a reference on visual storytelling techniques for directors, film students, home video makers or anyone who wants further insights on how pro-style movies are put together. This isn't just a formula: examples from classic and new films, from budget to big screen, pepper a survey of how camera set-ups work, how styles are developed for film, and how a camera's moves can interpret action and drama. Plenty of black and white illustration accompanies descriptions of jargon and typical camera moves. Very highly recommended." — Mid-West Book Review

"[Full of] useful shots that can help inspire you to try new things with your camera and to make sure you and your DP/Cinematographer are on the same page, using the same language…. It's packed with useful information on camerawork and editing for almost any reader. Film students will find that this book gives them a great framework to learn about the basics of filmmaking while more experienced filmmakers will find this to be a good refresher book…. Whether you're a director, an editor, or just a student of film, Setting Up Your Shots is a great investment that will help you prepare for future projects in the film industry." — MicroFilmmaker magazine

"Smartly illustrated and full of good, practical shot-making examples, Setting Up Your Shots ... is a worthwhile purchase for the budding filmmaker or videographer." —
