What makes TODAY'S VIDEO different
How many times have you been told, take the courses, get a degree, read the books, then when you get a job you'll REALLY learn the profession? That always bugged me -- why didn't the textbooks tell you what you really needed to know up front? This is why I wrote TODAY'S VIDEO -- to tell the important stuff, not just the obvious stuff. A big revelation about the video business: video is not just aiming cameras or copying tapes. It's a bunch of odd things you wouldn't guess at first. It's connecting cables, using adapters, buying gadgets, aiming antennas, typing text into character generators, and using "tricks" to make things look and sound better than they actually are. That's where TODAY'S VIDEO differs from other books in the field. It teaches the ancillary things you need to know to be a successful videographer. And it teaches the basic, obvious things, too.
I hope I've succeeded at putting a career in this book. Sorry it's so inexpensive, but it is, after all, a whole career.
