Overview

There are many books on the art of directing. This is the only book about the career itself. Building on the success and popularity of the 1st edition of The Working Director, this new edition adds entirely new and up-to-the-minute focus on the current world of the entry-level filmmaker, the filmmaker looking to move up, and the director who’s fighting to reinvent a once promising career. Readers learn where filmmakers find the filmmaking skills they need, how to approach the so-critical first film, how to land that first directing job, and how to get a suddenly silent phone to start ringing again. Using examples from his three decades directing high-profile productions, writer/director Charles Wilkinson shares a thousand lessons learned by himself and his fellow working directors.
