Low Budget Filmmaking Producing

Book Review: Single-Camera Video Production (Sixth Edition)


Publisher: Focal Press

Release Date: June 28, 2014

Robert B. Musburger and Michael R. Ogden have written an excellent introductory textbook on single camera video production that is both helpful and easy to understand. Their text provides a general guide for future filmmakers and students that will serve as a foundation that they can build upon. The technology is discussed in an extremely in-depth manner, but their text is general enough so that the reader can apply their knowledge to the various cameras, microphones, and other technologies on the market. Each phase of production is covered (Pre-production, Production, and Post-Production) in some detail. Anyone planning a digital production in the near future should find the book helpful, and teachers should find the text to be a valuable introductory guide to the subject.
