To Purchase:


"Getting to grips with broadcast technology can be a tricky business but Nick Shipley really knows how to deliver the goods. His training DVD is concise yet comprehensive, thorough yet easy to digest. He strikes exactly the right balance between providing the theoretical principles of camera optics and the hands-on techniques of camera operation." C.J. BBC Video Journalist

"Single Camera Pro is an excellent teaching resource. The tutorials are delivered in direct, clear language by an experienced professional, supported with simple, well-produced illustrations that effectively demonstrate what is being discussed. The DVD is divided into individual sections so that selection of key components that are particularly relevant can be made easily and quickly. The DVD fills a niche in the training market in that it does not assume the availability of a professional crew, but instead assumes that the videographer will be working alone. This makes it particularly valuable for the training of students and others who are hoping to work in the many fields that now demand low-budget video. I strongly recommend this resource for anyone wanting an introduction to the techniques of professional single-camera video production." John Hillel. Australian Catholic University Lecturer (written in 2012)
