dont bother with spending money on books and dvd's and stuff, everything u need is on the internet for free.
u can start here Free UDK tutorials
UnrealKismet is merely a visual scripter, so instead of writing script, u just connect the nodes, alot like a material editor, in other word's, yes, u can use kismet to mess around with the players camera, there are several effects such as camera shake, camera fade, postprocessing and many other things, if ur looking more toward's cinematic's, then unreal matinee is where u want to be, im not going to go into detail, but merely answer ur questions.
i dont really understand this question but i will try my best to answer, i will just have to say, almost anything is possible
I use the UDK alot, im actually looking to start a pc game development company here in New Zealand with the UDK as its base, which is why i have come to these forums to seek out potential, though i havnt found many people at all in New Zealand whom actually use the UDK, i would say there are alot of Austrailian's whom use this mind blowing technology
because there are tutorial's on the internet which can answer all these question's, u just need to seek em out
i hope i helped, this was the first thread i came across looking for potential on this site
