Have you ever thought about making your own music video or even a full-length feature? Well, with today's high-quality digital video cameras, microphones, software, computers, and delivery tools, it's possible for just about anyone to make a movie. If you have the right tools and skills, the rest is up to your imagination! Whether you want to make a video of your friend's band, a documentary, or a video of a special family event, you'll need to learn the basic skills of movie making: how to make a good story, how to translate your story into images, how to capture the images, and how to turn the images into a finished piece. Making Digital Videos answers all of these questions; from writing your script and planning the shoot, to using your gear and delivering it on tape, CD-ROM, DVD, e-mail, or the Web. You'll also learn about editing, adding sound, and creating special effects by working with actual movie footage. Each chapter includes helpful hints, watchouts, and practice activities, and for those of you considering the film industry as a career, there is information on a variety of jobs in the industry.
