How to Shoot Video That Doesn't Suck is a quick and easy guide that will make your video better instantly-- whether you read it cover to cover or just skim a few chapters. It's about the language of video. How to think like a director, regardless of equipment (amateurs think about the camera, pros think about communication). It's about the rules developed over a century of movie-making--which work just as well when shooting a two-year-old's birthday party. Written by Steve Stockman, the director of Two Weeks (2007), plus TV shows, music videos, and hundreds of commercials, How to Shoot Video That Doesn't Suck explains in 74 short, pithy, insightful chapters how to tell a story and entertain your audience. How to shoot video people will want to watch. Here's how to think in shots--how to move-point-shoot-stop-repeat, instead of planting yourself in one spot and pressing "Record" for five minutes. Why never to shoot until you see the whites of your subject's eyes. Why to "zoom" with your feet and not the lens. How to create intrigue on camera. The book covers the basics of framing, lighting, sound (use an external mic), editing, special effects (turn them off!), and gives advice on shooting a variety of specific situations: sporting events, parties and family gatherings, graduations and performances. Plus, how to make instructional and promotional videos, how to make a music video, how to capture stunts, and much more. At the end of every chapter is a suggestion of how to immediately put what you learned into practice, so the next time you're shooting you'll have begun to master the skill. Accompanying the book is a website with video clips to illustrate different rules, techniques, and situations.

Britain is hardly shy of wedding-centred romantic comedies, but The Wedding Video does manage to find one or two new angles. The setup here is that Rufus Hound plays Raif, who’s asked to be best man for his brother, played by Robert Webb. Raif is one of those bumbling oafs who tend to inhabit such comedies, but his plan is to give his brother and his new wife a wedding of their video as a gift. What could go wrong there? It all sets the scene for a down-to-earth, enjoyable romantic comedy, that gives room for its talent ensemble to thrive. Robert Webb is a good leading man, and Lucy Punch also gives a quality performance as his wife-to-be, Saskia. Miriam Margoyles is in scene-stealing form, too. Granted, at the heart is a fairly conventional spin on the genre, but director Nigel Cole finds enough in the material to keep things interesting and pacey. The disc itself, on top of the main feature, bundles in a lengthy collection of interviews with the cast and crew of The Wedding Video. They don’t have anything particularly revolutionary to offer, but it’s interesting nonetheless. And it’s the warm, amiable and frequently funny film that remains, rightly, the main attraction here. Worth checking out. --Jon Foster
