About the Author:

Michael Hughes, after working in radio and television (as an announcer, cameraman, and floor director), started a corporate audio visual business that specializes in training and marketing videos for businesses. His clients include the governments of Canada and British Columbia, B.C.'s telephone company, the natural gas company, several sawmills, and many other companies both large and small. He does most of the technical work himself, hiring crew as needed. He became the teaching assistant for his father's "Introduction to Filmmaking" course in 1972 (16mm film). After two semesters, Mike took over the course and has been teaching filmmaking ever since – as well as continuing his corporate video company.
