About this title


Directing for Film and Television reveals practical insights for every phase of directing, from reading prospective scripts through overseeing post-production.

Legendary stories portray directors as eccentric, moody savants who possess a genius for the film medium that mere mortals could never grasp. Throughout cinematic history, gushing accounts have cast the likes of DeMille, Hitchcock, Fellini, and Spielberg as sorcerers, rather than tradesmen. Now confounding these lofty perceptions, acclaimed veteran director Christopher Lukas examines the craft and art of directing as a teachable, learnable profession.

From the Publisher:

By dissecting what happens from the first day of shooting to the final edit, Lukas reveals every task and talent required of a director. In addition to an examination of the rhythm and pace of a film shoot and discourse on the look, tone, and setting of a film, directors will gain sound perspective on technical matters such as: ·making budgetary decisions ·casting the right actors ·scouting locations ·setting up shots ·using traditional vs. digital cameras

Directing for Film and Television, essential for anyone with a career or interest in directing, also provides expert advice on how directors can find work in a cutthroat business. By mastering the lessons contained in this volume, directors can begin to inspire legendary stories of their own careers.
