Learn from TRUE GAME LEGENDS: Warren Spector - Founder of Origin Games, Ron Burke - Founder of GamingTrend, and Bob Sabiston of Flat Black Films...as they share their secrets on applying age-old cinematic film techniques to the greatest games of our time.

This book introduces game producers and directors to the tried and true techniques cinematographers have relied on for years.

The book will also feature screen shots from some of today's hottest titles that illustrate key cinematic concepts, as well as advice from successful game industry professionals already using these techniques.
