You're welcome! There is also a longer thread in the archives about it, because I remember reading it, but I couldn't locate it through a search.

Well, thanks for trying anyway. I'll take a look myself later. I'm gonna get the discs no matter but I thought I'd just do a little research before I did. But again thank you-The Captain B)

Hey James,

Yah I only rented 2 of the 6 DVDs their not bad actually - no let me correct that - their pretty good and pretty advanced stuff, if you still wanted to get them I suggest just renting them here's the url: http://technicalvide...mp;cPath=109_86 and their the last 3 @ the buttom of the page. Hope this helps!

my best,
Joey Dee

Try looking for them on eBay. It's generally cheaper, and once you do get bored with it, you can sell them on for $30 loss - that sort of stuff doesn't get updated that much, so you're getting the same thing.

Hi James,
I got them early on by adding them as research materials to the cost of a production I was doing. The producer was kind enough to comply. I was very lucky because they are a bit pricey. You'll find my endorsement on their website. I don't think I've ever run into any materials on camera movement as good as these. If there is something better, please tell me. All six of them are a course in their own right.
Not only do they give you great ideas for your shot moves but they help you to organize a methodology in your shot movement approach so you, as the DP, can back out and think bigger picture.

One of the most useful things about discs 5&6 is the shorthand for shot motion you learn. I challenge you to just memorize the methodology of the notation. With a little practice you can quickly sketch out 4 or 5 ideas while doing your location work and discover a unique movement vocabulary that fits your project. I find it enormously useful. Like everything else, it does take a bit of effort to learn. But I find they help me to see further into the material.
