So yeah, I'm writing a book. Hey, pre-order it now, because we expect to sell, like, literally several of them.
It's a book about using digital video and visual effects to maximize production value in low-budget films, with a particular slant to kinetic cinema, AKA action films. I'll cover a bunch of effects stuff both practical and digital, as well as techniques for maximizing production quality using only off-the-shelf tools. A DVD insert will contain a bunch of sample footage and After Effects 7.0 projects.
I'm still working on this thing, so if you have suggestions or reviews of other books on this subject (a few are found to the right), please post them here!
