Selected Reviews on "The Shut Up and Shoot Documentary Guide"

"Anthony Artis' "The Shut Up and Shoot Documentary Guide" is a good primer for the entry-level documentary filmmaker, presented in a breezy, down-to-earth vernacular style."
-Thomas White, Editor of Documentary Magazine, a publication of the International Documentary Association.

"I vouch for this book...extremely helpful for the newborn documentary filmmaker."
-Albert Maysles, Grey Gardens

"The book is a very easy, straightforward read with plenty of graphics to demonstrate proper and improper techniques…It is also extremely user friendly in its layout…. [It] will be helpful to you for many, many years to come."
– Microfilmmaker Magazine

"The book has a luxury presentation that makes you feel like a successful filmmaker – or that you soon will be – from the word go...Carried out in full colour, which makes a relief from too many academic tomes, its 296 pages are chock-a-block with very useful illustrations. But the clincher seem to be the DVD which is all part of the package. You’re a filmlmaker, after all. A visual artist. Why would you want to spend all your time reading when you can be watching and learning."
- British Film Magazine

"Anthony Artis has consolidated years of practical, professional experience into the quintessential blueprint for documentary filmmakers. I have used the techniques in this book on my documentary and narrative film projects, knowing that budget should never stop a filmmaker from seeing his or her vision through. I highly recommend this book if you want to turn your limitations into assets. Now shut up and shoot!"
-Pete Chatmon, Writer/Producer/Director PREMIUM and 761st

"Plain and simple, nuts and bolts on making documentary films. It's told in a conversational manner with no wasted or minced words and most importantly no BS! Few books of this type would mention how important it is to take care of your crew and how that can dramatically improve the outcome of your film. Definitely told from an insiders point of view with useful and practical info that won't go over your head."
-Cliff Charles, DP, When the Levees Broke, ThePeoplesDP.com

"The practical approach promised in the title is delivered fully by the text. Artis exposes the pitfalls that can swallow a beginning filmmaker and offers straightforward advice to avoid them."
-Jonathan Luskin, Flying Moose Pictures, San Francisco.
