Reviews

"Robb Montgomery is a true mojo-master. Hands-on, easy to read and tested on the terrain, this book is an essential guide to get you started with your smartphone. Packed with hands-on tips and clever hacks, it will make all the difference when you go out in the field to shoot your own stories."

Ezra Eeman, Head of Digital, EBU Switzerland

"Robb Montgomery's easy-to-follow instruction can take a journalist from novice to pro in a matter of a few videos. There's something to learn on every page. Who knew that a pair of sneakers were the only zoom a mobile journalist could ever need?"

Katie Wadington, news director, Asheville (N.C.) Citizen Times

"Robb does a great job of organizing this book and the important topics related to mobile journalism like framing for vertical video. Additionally, the sample videos, shot in various locations around the world, and exercises will make this text an excellent choice for media educators to use in their courses."

Kim Fox, The American University in Cairo, Egypt

"An immensely smart and useful guide for the amateur and professional alike (I learned a few things, and I've been shooting professional narratives for almost 20 years). Technology is changing so rapidly these days, it's incredible that you can accomplish so much with the device we all regularly carry around in our pocket. But many people still lack the basic storytelling skills to make a rich and watchable narrative. This book will help people organize their story, compose and shoot like a pro."

Erik Olsen, Quartz, USA

"500 years ago, Gutenberg's printing press changed the world.

That piece of technology meant that anyone could now publish and share their ideas.

Literacy became essential.

10 years ago, another piece of technology did the same - the iPhone.

It is the Gutenberg's printing press of our own digital age, and it does the same- makes it possible for anyone to publish and share their ideas, but in video.

Essential to both is literacy. Print literacy for the press, video literacy for the smartphone.

Smartphone Video Storytelling is a great way to become `video literate' in a fast and easy to understand way."

Michael Rosenblum, Founder - TheVJ.com, USA

To boot, this book with it's up -to-date techniques can be used for training emerging professionals too. This author is ahead of the curve when it comes to teaching how to create fact-based visual storytelling using simple skills and methods."

"With a mobile phone, everybody can be a film maker today. With the web and social media apps, everybody can become a broadcaster. Not everybody though has got film making skills and experience, until today. Robb Montgomery shares his best practices in the Smartphone Video Storytelling and he promises to make every one of us a professional film maker. The only part missing now is a story. What's yours?! "

Grzegorz Piechota, Senior Research Fellow, University of Oxford

"When TV was invented 90 years ago we handed control over production to the media and never asked for it back. Now smartphones give everyone the chance to produce high quality stories that look and sound professional. Be video literate! All you need is a phone and this book."

John Whyte-Venables, phone video trainer

"Smartphone Video Storytelling is not only for the "bookshelf", but an important item worthy of being part of one's storytelling kit. Readers will learn the foundations of storytelling and then apply the advice and techniques through -practical exercises to help tell better stories. Be prepared to be challenged and motivated."

Len Clark, PhD, Irish 101

The book is very well classified in chapters with a fixed format and guides you step by step through the knowledge.
