Making a film has never been easier: what’s a smartphone after all but a high quality, portable video recorder capable of shooting all manner of lighting situations in full HD, says independent filmmaker Robert Blofield. His book explains the skills needed to help budding filmmakers turn their ideas into reality, and is full of useful tips. Covering everything from where to find inspiration, to mastering light and sound (generally the area most overlooked by first-time directors), it is both informative and inspiring. Skill nine, of ten, covers ways to get your film shown. The spiral bound format should make it easy to use even on set! ~ Andrea Reece

He began creating independent video productions for film festivals and freelance projects in 2005 and, since becoming enthralled with the medium, has gone on to teach professional film and television production techniques to a new generation of filmmakers. Robert is currently in the pre-production stages of three fictional shorts, which he will be directing and unveiling at major film festivals in 2015/16. VENETIA DEAN studied for an Art and Design degree at Leeds University where she experimented for a while in ceramics and photography before deciding that illustration was her calling.

She loves living in Leeds as she can draw so much inspiration for her illustrations and photography.
