Book Review: Filmmaking for Teens

Filmmaking for Teens: Pulling Off Your Shorts

I read this book because it is part of Michael Weise Productions texts on filmmaking.  I was curious why several books on serious filmmaking targeted at teenagers? And the obvious answer is teens aspire to make movies being such great consumers of hollywood and make for a good marketing niche to sell film books to.  The text is well-written and teaches what it says:  Making short films for school projects, etc.  Could it lead to serious filmmaking? Definitely and it aims also to build a foundation in that direction and selling them more books.  It is good for a quick read but the content is no different than any other general film book.
