“From the interested layman’s perspective, the book was fun to read, well-formatted, and substantive. I especially liked the tip sheet summaries. We watch the Channel 11 News Hour nightly, and I kept seeing your points illustrated in its setup pieces – the establishing shots, the transitions, the little story within the bigger story, the wide shots and close-ups, the use of sound.”
Peg Corwin Marketing Consultant

Yeah…and it probably does apply for porn too come to think of it.”
