"The book has a luxury presentation that makes you feel like a successful filmmaker – or that you soon will be – from the word go...Carried out in full colour, which makes a relief from too many academic tomes, its 296 pages are chock-a-block with very useful illustrations. But the clincher seems to be the DVD which is all part of the package. You’re a filmmaker, after all. A visual artist. Why would you want to spend all your time reading when you can be watching and learning." - British Film Magazine

"Anthony Artis' "The Shut Up and Shoot Documentary Guide" is a good primer for the entry-level documentary filmmaker, presented in a breezy, down-to-earth vernacular style."
