Film Books Worth Looking Into

<<<-- Originally posted by dstinson : Well, I just got my GL2. 4) anyone recommend a book or maybe an online tutorial on "filming techniques'? I just want to learn more about techniques to make my filming better. I'm a little clumsy with the camera and need to know some basic techniques on how to film people.

Thanks! -->>>

There are several books that I refer to for film techniques:

Film Directing Shot by Shot - by Steven D. Katz
This book is about camera placement and filiming technique.
Amazon Link -
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0941188108/ref=ase_imagestudio/102-6343684-4036954

The Filmmaker's Handbook - by Steven Ascher and Edward Pincus
As the back of the book states, it is "considered the bible of film production.
Amazon Link -
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0452279577/ref=ase_imagestudio/102-6343684-4036954

Producing Great Sound for Digital Video - by Jay Rose
I think that the title says it all.
Amazon Link -
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0879305975/ref=ase_imagestudio/102-6343684-4036954

I refer to each of these books during the week. They have made a HUGE difference in my approach to filming.

Thanks Chris! I never even thought of posting the links here. I hope these books help others as much as they have helped me.
