YOUR OWN PRODUCTION BUSINESS – SUDDENLY AFFORDABLE
Today’s video production tools have radically democratized the industry. Just ten years ago, a few major facilities dominated the media production scene. If you wanted to design print, produce video, create CD-ROMs, or design websites, you had to spend millions in education, equipment and software. Now, thousands of small shops serve companies from major TV networks to corporate communications departments, advertising agencies to home consumers, and everything in between. And there’s plenty of business for even more shops! If owning and operating your own desktop studio intrigues you, Desktop Video Studio Bible gives you an explicit start-to-success roadmap! And it doesn’t cost a fortune!

Expert George Avgerakis—who runs a successful multimedia studio in New York City, as well as writes and speaks professionally on the subject—generously shares his insider’s edge and years of experience in this complete guide to getting up and running with your own one-person video production shop.
