9780847842902: Scenes from the City: Filmmaking in New York. Revised and Expanded

Scenes from the City: Filmmaking in New York is a celebration of the rise of New York-shot films, particularly after the Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting was formed in 1966. This revised and expanded edition, edited by James Sanders, includes a new decade of filmmaking in NYC, a section on women filmmakers and rare, behind-the-scenes shots directly from studio archives. It also explores the recent growth of the City's television industry with more episodic series being produced in New York City now than ever before. Today's the City's entertainment industry employs 130,000 New Yorkers and contributes more than $7 billion to the local economy each year.

About the Author:

James Sanders, an architect, co-wrote the Emmy Award-winning PBS series New York: A Documentary Film and its companion volume, New York: An Illustrated History, as well as Celluloid Skyline: New York and the Movies. He has written for the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, Vanity Fair and Architectural Record. He has also participated in several important design projects in and around the city.

Review:

“By the early 1970s, New York’s reign as a television and filmmaking capital seemed to be over. What a difference a few decades make. In Scenes From the City, James Sanders masterfully revises and expands his original book...In his chronological, lavishly illustrated backstage tour, Mr. Sanders, an architect and filmmaker himself, details how assiduously Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and his predecessors wooed Hollywood...and reaped... an intangible reward: the 'power to convert the daily reality of the city into a magical transcendent realm.'" The New York Times

“...this book captures stories and images of one of the world’s most filmed and most cinematic cities – New York. The locale is presented in all its iconic glory through landmark location films, beginning from the forties to the present. Rare and unusual photographs are accompanied by the commentary of actors, directors and other filmmakers. This film history is a great reminder of the force of landscape as a character in the history of cinema.” –Malibu Times

"From the cinema verite of the 1960s to softer fare, New York has provided some of film's most famous moments. 'Scenes' captures the current work of directors as diverse as Martin Scorcese and Spike Lee." -Publishers Weekly

Book Description Rizzoli International Publications, United States, 2014. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Revised and expanded ed. Language: English . Brand New Book. Scenes from the City is a celebration of the rise of New York-shot films, particularly after the MOFTB was formed in 1966 making the city a much more welcoming film location. New York could, once again, lure talent such as Woody Allen and Martin Scorcese, to its streets - streets that could provide both a desolate urban prairie for Midnight Cowboy or a delightful 5th Avenue shopping romp for a Mrs. Golightly. New York s cityscape has enriched the movies it s been a part of with its diverse and entrancing visage, not unlike the faces of the industry s most beautiful and talented actors and actresses. Scenes from the City is an affectionate ovation for this character that rarely receives billing, but always steals the show. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780847842902
