    Not what you'd call a compelling thrill-ride of a read. :) However, it's been like 20 years since I took Film Studies 101, and this is a really solid textbook for re-familiarizing yourself with the basics of visual literacy - line, tone, movement, shape, color, rhythm, composition. If you are primarily a visual artist, this is all beginner's basics stuff that you probably don't need. But for me, it's extremely helpful for improving my sense of visual composition when I'm working on scripts for comics, or for improving my ability to dialogue with artists when we're discussing how to implement a wireframe for UI, or for giving me a starting place if I need to adjust cameras in a 3D scene. Basically, I'd say it's probably most useful for either people who are just barely getting started in visual media, or for people who don't create visual art but need to interact regularly with people who do.

    Nice clear delineation of the visual elements of screen storytelling and how to structure them to best effect. This book provided some simple working tools to get a handle on the complexities of filmmaking and other screen media in a way that I have sought for years. The framework provided allows you to move beyond intuition and gut-feeling and get a firm grasp on the creative components of the craft.

    we see lots of pictures, movies and even real life scenery's that we find lovely and attractive. Ever wondered why do u find them appealing ?The visual story provides the basic visual components of space, line, shape , tone , color, movement and rhythm and how each one contribute to the visual structure. Also presents some concepts like contrast and affinity and visual progression with some examples and illustrations.

    Not a bad read for an image design textbook. (I was expecting it to be excruciating, but I got through the entire thing on time for class.) Clear, sometimes overly simplistic, however. But good for any film maker/photographer.

    this book sujests and shows examples that A movie/ story of any visual kind can control how a person reacts by use of camera locations, lighting, coulour, tone, and choice of captured motion.
