In 1935 Moorfield & Shannon Publishers announced a new series of movie booklets of special interest to the amateur movie maker.
In October of 1935 the First Edition of the booklet "Movie Making Made Easy" coincided with the new advances in amateur cinematography. The same year, and by popular demand, a Second Edition, Revised by William J. Shannon was published and details on the Kodachrome and Dufaycolor processes make their appearance among all the essential advice and "how to do" instructions. Since then, an entirely new field was opened for the amateur movie maker.
This book marks the beginning of a process that took another 71 years up to this year, 2006, to encounter another technological revolution in movie making: affordable digital video cameras and on-demand viewing available to every person with access to computers and/or wireless and mobile devices.
