✏How to Shoot Video That Doesn t Suck Book Summary : Newly updated and revised, 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 and 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 on your phone. Written by Steve Stockman, the director of the award-winning feature Two Weeks, 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. In other words, 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 video production: 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’ve learned into practice, so the next time you’re shooting you’ll have begun to master the skill. Steve’s website ( provides video examples to illustrate different production ideas, techniques, and situations, and his latest thoughts on all things video.

✏Becoming Rhetorical Analyzing and Composing in a Multimedia World Book Summary : Becoming rhetorical is a transformation that allows students to identify rhetorical problems and respond to them with arguments, no matter the course or context from which the problems emerge. In BECOMING RHETORICAL, author Jodie Nicotra takes students beyond the view of the rhetorical situation as being composed of communicator, audience, and message, encouraging them also to consider important aspects such as exigence, purpose, and the means of communication. Students learn to analyze and compose in textual, visual, and multimodalities -- from evaluating an op-ed piece, to making a video of a consumer product, to creating an entire public awareness campaign -- thereby becoming confident critical thinkers in a 21st century multimedia world.

✏Built to Suck Book Summary : CORPORATIONS ARE DYING. CAN THEY BE SAVED? In late 2018, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos addressed his entire staff in an all-hands meeting. "Amazon will fail and go bankrupt one day" he said. "Your job is to delay this for as long as possible!" Advertising icon, Jay Chiat, once said: "Let's see how big we get before we suck." In Built to Suck, longtime corporate provocateur Joseph Jaffe argues that the Corporate Era is rapidly coming to an end. The biggest reason? The central operating system that powers the corporation, namely SIZE, will be its downfall. Size is no longer a growth enabler; it's a growth inhibitor. This conclusion is backed up with empirical evidence and the indisputable fact that the lifespan of the corporation has shrunk dramatically from 75 to just 15 years. And all of this has happened in just the past 50 years. Between 2016-2018 alone, just over half of the Fortune 500 companies had declining revenues. So is this the end for the corporation as we know it? Possibly. Probably. At least until companies can figure out how to "embrace their Heresy" and deliver on 4 key pillars that are outlined in this book: Digital Disruption, Talent Resurrection, Customer Obsession and Corporate Citizenship. Built to Suck doesn't pull any punches and serves notice to the corporate world: your business model is flawed and your days are numbered. Can you meet the challenge and move your organization's journey from "survival to thrival" - or will you fail and fade into obsolescence like so many others? This is the most urgent question facing the modern corporation today, and Built To Suck is the wake-up call and roadmap to success that every corporation desperately needs.

✏Spin Book Summary : From the author of Axis and Vortex, the first Hugo Award-winning novel in the environmental apocalyptic Spin Trilogy... One night in October when he was ten years old, Tyler Dupree stood in his back yard and watched the stars go out. They all flared into brilliance at once, then disappeared, replaced by a flat, empty black barrier. He and his best friends, Jason and Diane Lawton, had seen what became known as the Big Blackout. It would shape their lives. The effect is worldwide. The sun is now a featureless disk--a heat source, rather than an astronomical object. The moon is gone, but tides remain. Not only have the world's artificial satellites fallen out of orbit, their recovered remains are pitted and aged, as though they'd been in space far longer than their known lifespans. As Tyler, Jason, and Diane grow up, space probe reveals a bizarre truth: The barrier is artificial, generated by huge alien artifacts. Time is passing faster outside the barrier than inside--more than a hundred million years per day on Earth. At this rate, the death throes of the sun are only about forty years in our future. Jason, now a promising young scientist, devotes his life to working against this slow-moving apocalypse. Diane throws herself into hedonism, marrying a sinister cult leader who's forged a new religion out of the fears of the masses. Earth sends terraforming machines to Mars to let the onrush of time do its work, turning the planet green. Next they send humans...and immediately get back an emissary with thousands of years of stories to tell about the settling of Mars. Then Earth's probes reveal that an identical barrier has appeared around Mars. Jason, desperate, seeds near space with self-replicating machines that will scatter copies of themselves outward from the sun--and report back on what they find. Life on Earth is about to get much, much stranger. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

✏Making Friends With Black People Book Summary : White people of America, we know you've got it rough. Sure, black men and women have been through four hundred years of slavery, oppression, murder, and watching white college students try to dance. But now that it's hip to have black friends, white people aren't sure how to go about it. And that is a real American tragedy. Thank God Nick Adams is here to help you avoid potential racial pitfalls and successfully make the transition from white to "aiight." Now, you'll know not to start a conversation with, "So, that new Jay-Z album is pretty great, right?" Or tell a co-worker he looks just like (fill in blank with name of dark-skinned person who works in the other building.) You'll know that a lot of black people you meet at parties or work functions don't care who played Thelma's husband on "Good Times", don't want to discuss the Malcolm X biography you just read and definitely don't want to listen to country music. Ever. Yes, it's a good thing Nick is here to explain. Because if we're going to live together in peace and harmony, you people are going to need help. Black People, Briefly Explained. A Q&A with Nick Adams Q: Nick, what is the correct term to use when addressing my new friends: Black or African-American? A: Personally, I always liked Afro-American. I liked being named after a 1970's hairdo. But then I wondered why we didn't become the Jheri-curled Americans or High Top Fade Americans. Q: Nick, if black people can use the "N" word as a term of endearment, can I, a white person, do so? A: No. I don't care if you have your hair in cornrows while wearing a Phat Farm t-shirt at an R. Kelly concert. Black people don't get to be president, and white people don't get to use the word nigger. Can we just call it even now? Q: Nick, I'd like to try slang. Is that okay? A: When you guys start using our words, that's when we know it's time for us to stop using them. Every time a white, middle-aged math teacher calls a student, "dog," black people all over the country are notified via email. Believe it. Q: Nick, surely you have to agree that Eminem is a hip-hop visionary? A: Let's try this one more time: Kurtis Blow, RUN-DMC, LL Cool J, Rakim, Chuck D, KRS-One, Tupac, Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Common, Mos Def, Bitch!
