About the book

Filmmaking involves much more than just buying a camera and a computer and The Digital Filmmaking Handbook covers everything you need to know, whether you’re making a feature-length movie, a series of webisodes or even your first short film.

This one-stop digital filmmaking resource will guide you from your initial idea to getting your finished project “in the can.” It will show you how to create shots and effects that are rarely associated with low-budget productions. In addition there’s a special new chapter on shooting your indie film with a DSLR and an advanced discussion on finishing your film for digital cinema projection.
