Summary

In this chapter, you’ve learned about some of the key concepts in shooting movies: shot types, sequences, action, and directing. You’ve gotten hands-on, practical information about your camcorder and how to use it, and you’ve learned how to avoid many of the common mistakes beginners make: not using a tripod, zooming and panning a lot, and getting poor audio. You’ve learned about the right way to shoot—using long, medium, and close-up shots—how to handle tape, and how to be invisible when the occasion calls for it.

In this chapter you’ve also discovered resources to help you visualize movies before you start shooting as well as resources to inspire and delight you.
