Summary

Meeting the instructor's needs for a briefer book, this text distills video basics so that they can be covered in a single term. The book moves students from video concepts and processes to production tools and techniques, and finally, to the production environment (studio or field, inside or outside) and its effects. A more conceptual framework leads the student from the idea (what to create) to the image (how to create) on video.
