Ready, Steady, Shoot ~ Review & Giveaway!!!!!

Ready, Steady, Shoot.
Three words you need to know for great videos of whatever you desire.


That's it.
Just three little words.


Easy, right?
I know, a lot of people freeze up when it comes to taking videos.


This book, Pocket Posh Guide to Great Home Video, Ready, Steady, Shoot by Roger Sherman, is the book for all of us.
Yes.
All. Of. Us.
No exceptions.


I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to review it.
It is extremely informative.
My fav chapter: Zooming Equals Death.
Poetic, no?
Seriously, it explains why zooming is not always the best option when filming (ever see Blair Witch Project? Have to take an anti-nausea pill afterwards?...that why!)


Remember, now a days, you aren't just using a video camera to film...everything from a Flip to your iPhone is able to take videos now.  This book is essential for all the video capable devices.


Using the author's 10 Shot Video learning system, anyone can practice making short, easy to understand exercises to get the hang of it.  The best part: The book is only about 4x6 so it is easily portable.  I take it with me to Cheeks flag football on Sunday & read when he's not playing.  Seriously, flag football can be slow you know...tee hee.


Of course, this book will be coming in very handy when Tim graduates this June.  In 2008,  ok 1998, hmph in 1988 when I graduated high school no one thought to video me.  Of course back in the day video cameras where huge...they were getting smaller but nothing like today.  Can you really believe I graduated that long ago? I know! Me either.


I digress.


Now onto the best part, how would you like to own this book?

Smurfs: The Lost Village & Psst...a lightening fast Giveaway too!

Smurfs: The Lost Village is coming out April 7th.  That's this weekend.  
I don't know about you but I remember when the Smurfs first appeared on the scene.  Way back in the 80's...that's early 80's mind you.  I think I just gave away my age.  Yes, I am that old I remember the original gang.  I even had little Smurf toys.  One was a police officer.  That was because my dad was a police officer.
Enough reminiscing, I am so excited that the Smurfs have stood the test of time and the my child gets to experience them.  At 10 years old, he still likes them.  His favorite Smurf...Papa.  So we are definitely heading to opening weekend to see Smurfs: The Lost Village. 
Let us see what this film is all about:
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil …

Nessie & Me...a Review & a #Giveaway

Need a cute movie for the little ones to watch, this is the one.
Cheeks & I watched it, we liked it, albeit a bit young for my 10 year old boy.  I would say good age range for kids is maybe 3 to 7.

Here's a bit about the movie:

The Loch Ness Monster has been back in the news following a recent sighting and resurfaced pictures, just in time for the release of family movie “Nessie & Me,” which is now available on DVD & VOD, courtesy of Vision Films!
When 9-year-old Jamie moves to a beautiful lakeside village, he befriends a grumpy old sea captain who tells him of the lake’s mythical creature named Nessie. The townsfolk don’t believe him, but Jamie wonders if Nessie can be the solution to save the town from a greedy mogul who is buying up land around the lake… if only he can prove that Nessie is real. But sometimes it takes a little bit of magic, and with the help of a mermaid, a treasure map and an unlikely friendship with Nessie the Sea Monster, Jamie and the people of Lak…
