This book is aimed at "digital video enthusiasts", the fast-growing segment of advanced home-movie producers, film-school students, indie producers, and corporate trainers who aspire to achieve professional-looking movie style results using inexpensive digital gear. This book describes how to make low-cost DV look so much like film that it would take a professional videographer or cinematographer to tell the difference. Although the different frame rates of video and film evolved primarily for technical reasons, some industry experts believe that the differences in perception are rooted in the mechanics of human perception and brain wave frequencies. If this is true, the phenomenon of 24P won't be just a passing technical fad it's at the core of the movie experience. With this book and 24P, readers will gain an in-depth understanding of how to shoot movies with impressive results on video without the high-end gear and low-budget video perception.
