Although the number of budding filmmakers and the availability of digital video technology are growing, there are currently no books that encapsulate the process of creating a feature-length film using only a video camera and a home computer. "Desktop Cinema: Feature Filmmaking on a Home Computer" shows amateur filmmakers and computer enthusiasts alike how to create a feature or short film from start to finish using only home computer technology. Using his own film, "Able Edwards," as a model, the author illustrates step-by-step each stage of the filmmaking process, covering story, pre-production, production, post-production, and distribution. This book shows readers how to explore and use the readily available software and other technology tools effectively. The author's use of his own film makes the processes involved seem realistic and attainable and allows the reader to really see what works and what doesn't. An accompanying CD/DVD that features both the "Able Edwards" trailer and green screen reveals make "Desktop Cinema: Feature Filmmaking on a Home Computer" a comprehensive guide to digital filmmaking.
