Considered by many to be the definitive book on the subject, Producing and Directing the Short Film and Video illustrates in detail all of the steps involved in preproduction, production, post-production, and distribution. Its unique two-fold approach looks at filmmaking from the perspectives of both producer and director and explains how their separate energies must combine in order to create a successful short film--all the way from script to final product.
The second edition expands on the director's role in visualizing a project in the preproduction and production phases of a project. Issues such as storyboarding, lighting, and composition are addressed in detail.
