Overview

Michael Rabiger's books have sold over 100,000 copies and are popular worldwide among filmmakers and film students. Directing: Film Techniques and Aesthetics is a comprehensive manual that teaches the essentials of filmmaking from the perspective of the director. The hallmark of Rabiger's books is the emphasis on doing. At every stage, concepts are connected with action and hands-on work; every principle is made realizable through the dozens of projects and exercises. Covering the entire process of filmmaking—from developing a story idea to managing a film crew to the technical procedures of film production—this book is a rich resource that filmmakers will turn to again and again through their career. The fifth edition represents a significant update; a new co-author, Mick Hurbis-Cherrier, has been brought on. In response to customer feedback, the book is now streamlined (150 pages shorter) and much more visual, with updated illustrations.

Audience: Film students, directors, filmmakers, film industry professionals.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This terrific new edition, updating the classic, is one of the most complete manuals for directing you'll find. It gives both a broad overview and a detailed investigation of the craft; an explanation of the technology as well as an exploration of cinematic language and aesthetics.

So take this guide, add your own passion for filmmaking, and you'll have a solid foundation for any movie you make." - Nancy Savoca, director, Dogfight, Household Saints, 24 Hour Woman, and Union Square.

"While the basics of film aesthetics are well addressed, the value of this volume lies in its practical approach. Rabiger and Hurbis- Cherrier's firsthand experience allows them to describe the day- to- day of directing in simple, uncomplicated terms, appealing to both the novice and seasoned pro. . . The learning- by- doing method makes this across- the- board introduction accessible, practical and surprisingly entertaining."

- DGA Quarterly, http://www.dga.org/Craft/

Praise for the fourth edition

"Michael Rabiger's book "Directing: Film Techniques and Aesthetics" is the gold standard. His attention to the artistry of directing, not merely the technical concerns, puts him in the first rank. Rabiger's taste, knowledge, and insight are even more finely honed in this new edition. For the novice or the seasoned pro, this book is a joy and a must."

-Jared Rappaport, Chair of the Department of Cinema and Television Arts, California State University - Northridge

"As he has in previous editions of "Directing," Michael Rabiger continues to offer a complete and comprehensive overview of virtually all aspects of directing, from ideas to budgeting, from casting to editing. From my viewpoint there is no comparable book on the market."

-Eric Swelstad, Department Chair - Media Arts, Los Angeles Valley College

"A comprehensive introduction to directing that focuses heavily on the interpersonal and organizational aspects of the craft….For those about to embark on their debut short or feature, Directing offers a thorough manual that keeps one from having to learn everything the hard way." - American Cinematographer

Praise for the 3rd Edition:

"This is the single most valuable guide for both novice and seasoned practitioner…The new edition continues to be the comprehensive text for learning directing, integrating the rapid changes in technology with what was already a superbly detailed step-by-step text." - Jameson Goldner, professor of cinema at San Francisco State University

"This is the only comprehensive book on filmmaking that I recommend to my students", Jeremy Kagan, USC Graduate Film School; Artistic Director Sundance Institute
