Summary "The third edition has been completely revised to capitalize on the advantages offered by the revolutionary shift to digital filmmaking. This new edition also emphasizes the connection between knowing and doing, with every principle realizable through projects and exercises. Much has been enhanced and expanded, notably, aspects of dramaturgy, beats and dramatic units, pitching stories and selling one's work, the role of the entrepreneurial producer, and the dangers of embedded moral values. Checklists are loaded with practical recommendations for action, and outcomes assessment tables help the reader honestly gauge his or her progress. Entirely new chapters present preproduction procedures, production design, script breakdown, procedures and etiquette on the set, shooting location sound, continuity, and working with a composer."--BOOK JACKET
"Directing: Film Techniques and Aesthetics is a comprehensive manual that teaches the essentials of filmmaking from the perspective of the director. Ideal for film production and directing classes, as well as for aspiring and current directors, Directing covers all phases of preproduction and production, from idea development to final cut. Thoroughly covering the basics, Directing guides the reader to professional standards of expression and control, and goes to the heart of what makes a director. The book outlines a great deal of practical work to meet this goal, with projects, exercises, and outcomes assessment tables to judge progress."
