As the Video Age returns us to our tribal roots as storytellers, artists and performers, it’s time to re-think what we want to say and learn how to say it with a camera.

Whether you’re a working professional, an aspiring filmmaker or the home/office paparazzi, the power of the medium–to inform, to entertain and to inspire–flows not from the camera but from the craft: the fine-tuning of a viewer’s perceptions. When you think of the camera as the viewer’s brain and yourself as a surgeon, you’re ahead of the game.
