Praise for Video Field Production and Editing

 

The blending of the technical and aesthetic aspects of video production is always a challenge, and Compesi has made a very good effort at making [these qualities] accessible to students in an introductory course. This is important to me as an educator and I believe it is an important core to a well-written text on video production.
