    Freeson

    Like the title suggests, this is a good introductory book that gives a wide overview of all the major areas of filmmaking. While it is not comprehensive, and each chapter does not delve in too deeply, it's still a great book to familiarize yourself with the concepts of filmmaking - finally learning phrases and lingo like "script breakdown" or "distribution". It is definitely not the only book you need, but it's a good jumping off point to deeper material.

    If you are interested in filmmaking as either a hobby or an actual profession, this book should suit you well from an beginner to intermediate level. It goes through the entire process in good detail. You will get tired of the awkward jokes found on every page, and it does feel a bit dated at times, but overall it is a good read it you are interested in filmmaking.

    This book is helpful if your a budding filmmaker but if you are just trying to make some youtube-worthy shorts then this might be a bit much. Very informative if you plan to have a career in film or begin a production company.

    A real joy for the people wanting to be filmmakers. I say, and even James Cameron says, pick up a camera and just shoot something. Bryan Michael Stoller teaches you how to do that, and does just that with no compromise.
