Overview

Producing and Directing the Short Film and Video is the definitive book on the subject for beginning filmmakers and students. The book clearly illustrates all of the steps involved in preproduction, production, postproduction, 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 to create a successful short film or video, from script to final product. This guide offers extensive examples from award-winning shorts and includes insightful quotes from the filmmakers themselves describing the problems they encountered and how they solved them. The companion website contains useful forms and information on grants and financing sources, distributors, film and video festivals, film schools, internet sources for short works, and professional associations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A veritable bible, valuable for both the short and feature filmmaker. It's as good as a year in most film schools." - Jon Davison, producer: Airplane, Robocop, and Starship Troopers

"A thoughtful and comprehensive guide to all aspects of making a short film. I wish a practical, nuts-and-bolts guide like this had existed when I was a film student." - Susan Seidelman, director, Desperately Seeking Susan, Smithereens, Sex in the City, The Electric Company, and Stella

"Without question, the definitive book on film production. A long-awaited, necessary map to the young filmmaker in his journey through the minefields of movie making. I would keep it next to the viewfinder." - Michael Pressman, film director, producer, The Practice, Chicago Hope, Picket Fences, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II

"This book should be considered the ‘bible’ for short film production."- Janaki Cedanna, Faculty & Film Studio Manager, Herberger Institute for Design and The Arts, Arizona State University
