This is a hand picked list of books and e-books on video production and filmmaking. They are not in alphabetical order. Links are to theC47's affiliates (Amazon only in this case).

Please let us know if you find a broken link by using theC47 Contact Form as some of these are to used books that are goldmines of information.

If you just want to make equipment purchases but don't want to use the product specific links below, please use these generic links... ABELCINE   |   B & H   |   AMAZON
