com FILM EDUCATION HAS JUST BEEN REVOLUTIONIZED Michael Wiese Productions brings their best-selling Master Shots book series to HD life on iBooks. When the book MASTER SHOTS (Michael Wiese Productions) was released in 2009 it quickly became a must-have for film students or any filmmaker who wanted to create unforgettable scenes and movies that looked like they had the backing of a major studio. Two other books followed and the acclaimed MASTER SHOTS series was born. MASTER SHOTS: ACTION, MASTER SHOTS: SUSPENSE, and MASTER SHOTS: STORY give filmmakers everything they need to create scenes worthy of Alfred Hitchcock or Frances Ford Coppola. Now, the beloved guides are taking on an expanded and enhanced form as digital books. Michael Wiese Productions has produced Multi-Touch digital editions of the three books in the Master Shots series, each of which include HD video and audio elements. Readers who want a live action video demonstration only have to tap to see it come to life. With this exciting new series, Michael Wiese Productions continues to stay on the frontier of film education. Founded in 1981, the company is the leading publisher of how-to film guides. “This series uses cutting-edge technology to do what MWP has done since its inception—share the secrets of great filmmaking and give everyone the tools they need to make a quality movie,” says Ken Lee, Vice President of Michael Wiese Productions. Christopher Kenworthy, author of the MASTER SHOTS series, worked hand-inhand with the production team at digital book development house Metrodigi to create video content that would bring the books to life and inspire the imaginations of filmmakers. Kenworthy wrote scripts, cast actors, and directed the videos that can turn even a first-time filmmaker into a pro. These enhanced digital books give filmmakers the secrets to creating the dynamic shots that all of the best movies include—whether it’s creating a fight scene that will have viewers blocking a left hook, building a nail-biting suspense shot, or creating the intimate scenes that are the stuff of movie magic. “If there was ever a series of books that deserved the enhanced eBook treatment it’s Master Shots,” says Lee. With the release of this new series MWP begins a new chapter in their company’s life and in the history of film education. KEN LEE and CHRISTOPHER KENWORTHY are available for interview.
