  • Basketball Miracle
  • Rubber Arm
  • Mystery Tower
  • And more!

  • In total, the book walks you step-by-step through the making of 23 different special effects videos!


    Cool & Included

    The Tricky Video book comes complete with the following:

  • A Hollywood-style slate (or clapper) to mark the start of every scene you shoot
  • Simple step-by-step sequences that show you how to make people disappear, how to stage a painless fight scene and more
  • A link to a website where the authors of the book have posted the very videos they themselves made using a drugstore camera and the instructions you’ll find within the book

  • Tricky Video Rating: 5
