topic icon Mark Brindle's book to be used as course workbook for IAC filmmaking classes

Regular readers will know that Maniac Films director Mark Brindle released his 1st book "The Digital Filmmaking Handbook" in April 2013 (See here for details).

Starting in 2014, the MasterClass Workshops (designed to take amateur cinematographers to the next level) will be using Mark's book as the required Foundation Course material, required by all attendees of the course for reference.

Mark is of course thrilled that his book has been recognised by the course organisers as a solid basis from which to start the course.

The course will be separated into 5 parts coving the various elements of the filmmaking process. For details on the course please visit
