Digital Guerrilla Video is the creative "manifesto" for todays independent digital video producers -- or "diguerrillas." It teaches the tactics for designing and producing creative digital images based on the guerrilla ethic: Use less money, less time, fewer tools, and new rules.

This wry and practical book explores the full digital video landscape -- from image design and acquisition to editing, post FX, sound design, audio production, and creating interactive multimedia and Web-based projects. Looking beyond scripting and storyboarding, Avi Hoffers grassroots techniques and tips help you assess a projects creative needs; establish its pre-production strategy; employ guerrilla tactics affecting pure digital/video/film images, typography, animation, music, and more; and weave it all together in the most creative, cost-effective, and time-efficient way possible.

You'll learn video survival skills they don't teach you in school: how to dig through "digital dumpsters" for free footage; how to use your equipment in ways that your user manual doesn't recommend; how to recycle digital elements and create unexpected effects; how to steal creatively without feeling guilty; and more.

The companion CD-ROM identifies and describes more than 600 Web resources, and contains creative software, stock footage, and sample projects to help you get started or keep evolving in the digital revolution.
