This first book in the series is designed to introduce the techniques used in digital filmmaking. It is aimed at anyone who has an interest in telling stories with pictures and sound and won't assume any familiarity with equipment or concepts. In addition to the basics of shooting and editing, different story forms will be introduced from documentary and live events through fictional narratives. Each of the topics will be covered in enough depth to allow someone with a camera and a computer to begin creating visual projects they can be proud of. This book is applicable to all novices or as an introduction to digital filmmaking classes. The book should also be a gateway to the series of books designed to impart greater sophistication in all areas of filmmaking.

Part I: Planning
Part II: Shooting
Part III: Editing and Post
Part IV: Distributing
Part V: Planning Revisited
