    This is a rare find! A brilliantly accessible practical resource for budding film makers and classroom teachers. It’s been carefully designed to appeal to both young people and adults, both novice and more experienced. The professional quality of the clips and the clarity of the text adds to the appeal of this iBook. I use it in primary, secondary and higher education environments and have found nothing better. This and Barrance's other digital resources are thoughtfully crafted materials - a boon for film educators everywhere, made with an expert eye and a clear passion for cinematic language.
