Everyone owns a video device. Bloggers, web sites, Facebook, YouTube—we’re drowning in video, and most of it sucks. Video that sucks gets turned off—fast.

It doesn’t matter if you’re shooting HD or cellphone—great video is about how you communicate with your audience.

Every chapter contains a clear, concise concept that you can try the next time you pick up a video camera. A little practice and your video will never suck again.
