shaping dough

Does anyone know where I can either purchase or view a video of shaping of french bread dough??    I started making french bread about a week ago, and while it tastes ok, the crumb is not as it should be, and there is usually a large slit through the inside where I have tried to shape it. Any help would be appreciated. I am using the recipe from Peter Reinharts Bread Baking Apprentice book.

Try Daniel's Rustic Bread

He has several videos, one is Baguettes and Traditional French Bread.

Also, King Arthur flour has a good DVD on baguettes.
