"The author does an admirable job of combining all aspects of traditional and new media in each chapter. The accompanying CD-ROM offers visual and audio examples of production design and is itself a good example of nonlinear programming in covering the concepts of storyboarding and releases, visual aesthetics, light quality, brightness and contrast, color mixing, color temperature, sound mixing, camera movements, sequencing of still images, and examples of persistence of movement and the phi phenomenon."
