EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

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 (stevestockman.com) provides video examples to illustrate different production ideas, techniques, and situations, and his latest thoughts on all things video.

Built To Suck

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

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.
