    Distracting errors either in narration or writing that became distracting and destroyed my faith in the books information.

    "Basic"

    It's definitely for beginners. That's all I can say. If you have been to some school for me to short already, and there's not much here that can help you.

    What didn’t you like about Benjamin Myers’s performance?

    his monotone slow voice


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disapointment


    Any additional comments?

    this book is for those who no nothing about film production. And much of the information is outdated
