Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
If the screenplay equation of one page equaling one minute of screen time can be applied, then Grove, a producer and founder of Raindance Film Festival and the British Independent Film Awards, couldn't provide a more tightly packed and potent two-hour narrative—this may be the most engaging and visually demonstrative introduction to filmmaking available in print. Actual filmic examples of diagrammed screenshots, storyboards, script breakdown sheets, business forms, equipment, lighting, makeup, and shot catalogs help to flesh out attractively the author's attainable 130 steps from idea to direction to postproduction to marketing and publicity. With a glossary, site lists, and a web promotion section. VERDICT From students to do-it-yourself upstarts, visually thinking artists embracing a visual medium can finally take part in the conversation. A lively supplement to academic texts, and a pleasing peek for fair-weather enthusiasts. See also Nathan Parker's Short Films, Andy Glynne's Documentaries, and Troy Lanier and Clay Nichols's Filmmaking for Teens.—Ben Malczewski, Ypsilanti Dist. Lib., MI
