Bruce Mamer's experience stretches across academia and the professional filmmaking market. Over the last 30 years, Mamer has freelanced with various lighting, shooting, and sound crews. In addition, he has directed many social service, documentary, and fictional film and video projects. Mamer taught film and video production for more than 25 years and is currently writing freelance on film and video topics, as well as rekindling an old love affair with still photography--working in both film and digital formats (http://jmlfoto.com). Up to date with the technology in his field, Mamer is very good at boiling down complex technical concepts and communicating them in a way that students can fully understand.Review:
"I think the book's greatest strength is that it can serve as both a textbook for an introductory media production class and a textbook for an introductory film class. The general level of detail and thoroughness is also a great asset. The book is obviously written by a filmmaker, which gives it credibility and weight."
"The single most impressive aspect of the book is the use of diagrams and illustrations to help present technical concepts. Many film students are visually oriented learners and can be turned off by what they perceive to be 'dry discussions of technical concepts.' I've looked at a lot of different texts over the years and have never found anything as well designed as is found in this book."
