I had to read this book for class. It was actually quite well written with some anecdotes thrown in to make it livelier. My aspiring DP friend practically made this book his bible and I had to prized it off his deathly grip. I just gave it 2 stars because I just use it as reference. DP friend would probably gave it a 5 since he actually carry it with him everywhere.

Recommends it for: cinematographers, grips and electrics
Shelves: film-books
If you work as a grip, electric or cinematographer this is required reading. Exhaustive reference book for equipment specs, knots, protocol and anything else you might encounter or need to know on set. Of no interest to anyone else.
I learned what a best boy is.
I also learned that there is one lighting book in the world that is actually full of useful information instead of a bunch of boring 'creative/artsy/mumbo-jumbo'.

This was stolen from me and I know who has it...TODD! Best book on lighting gear and film set stuff...ever....much better than the ASC manual.
Amazing and so useful...a must have for anyone interested in set lighting. Gives many diagrams, tricks of the trade, calculations, etc.
The single greatest field guidebook for any filmmaker!
