Review:

"Harry Box's Set Lighting Technician's Handbook (Focal Press) is a gold mine of information about safety, lighting and studio procedures." - Ron Dexter, ASC

From the Back Cover:

"Harry has taken the mystery out of set lighting for the beginner or pro. Current and includes the most up-to-date tricks of the trade. A book written by a pro who loves and respects his craft and is selfless in sharing information." –Mike G. Moyer, gaffer, Steel Magnolias, In the Line of Fire, Ground Hog Day

"Box’s style is reminiscent of an old buddy showing his best friend the ropes...perhaps the most easily read technical handbook to date...the broadest in scope and coverage, yet carefully covers the essential details." –Seth Greenspan, Filmcrew Magazine
