    I bought the book and didn't know the first thing about shooting funerals. I had heard memorial videos were on the increase. Here in Michigan, the thought of filming a funeral is just now catching on. I'll tell you straight up, Earl's book is the way to go if this is a field you are interested in. He's done a ton of funerals and has already experienced the goofs learning how to shoot a funeral so you don't have to! I like guys like that! I think the best thing about Earl's book is learning how to contact the funeral homes. That was probably the most important for us. We hope to start getting clients this month

    As someone who reads a wealth of technical and how-to manuals, I must say this has to be the most complete and comprehensive guide I've ever come across. Such an easy read, you'll likely read it twice just to absorb it all. If you are already doing video productions, this book is overflowing with absolutely everything you need to add funeral and memorial video production to your menu of services. I know that's what I'm going to do, it's that good! Not only does Earl break everything down into a light and easy-to-read form, telling you what to do, how to do it, and why. He gives plenty of examples and support materials on the bonus disk! He shares his wealth of experience and explains how the funeral industry works and provides his inside knowledge of it by giving you the needed background to literally bootstrap your operation and get your first gigs. This in my humble opinion is what sets this book and accompanying disk apart from your average how-to guide. The cover says: "A... More > Complete Guide" and that's no exaggeration. As others have said, this book is an excellent investment. I'd go so far as to say it's a steal at this price! You can easily recoup the price of this valuable resource with your first gig. If you've been thinking of adding funeral & memorials to your video services, this book is a MUST HAVE.< Less

    This book contains all you need to begin offering video production and memorial services as a service provider. It is chock-full of tips, real life stories from the author's experiences, suggestions on marketing, pricing, professional conduct and more. It is a well-done and thorough book written to mentor the video professional looking to learn more about this area of production. I highly recommend this book!
