Creative Filmmaking from the Inside Out: Five Keys to the Art of Making Inspired Movies and Television by Jed Dannenbaum, Carroll Hodge, Doe Mayer

Five keys to creating authentic, distinctive work, whether you are a student, professional or simply love making films on your own
For Creative Filmmaking from the Inside Out, three professors at the renowned University of Southern California School of Cinema-Television interviewed fifteen outstanding filmmakers, then distilled their insights into the "Five I's" of creativity. Learn how to:

• Uncover your unique creative voice (Introspection)
• Work from real-life observations and experience (Inquiry)
• Draw on your nonconscious wells of creativity (Intuition)
• Strengthen your creative collaborations (Interaction)
• Communicate at the deepest level with your audience (Impact)

This comprehensive approach provides practical exercises that will enrich and transform your work, whether you are looking for a story idea, lighting a set, editing a scene or selecting a music cue.
The participating filmmakers, who have collectively won or been nominated for 39 Oscars and 27 Emmys, are:
Anthony Minghella, writer-director (The English Patient); Kimberly Peirce, writer-director (Boys Don't Cry); John Lasseter, writer-director-producer (Toy Story); John Wells, writer-producer (ER); Hanif Kureishi, writer (My Beautiful Laundrette); Pamela Douglas, writer (Between Mother and Daughter); Renee Tajima-Peña, director-producer (My America...or, Honk If You Love Buddha); Ismail Merchant, producer (The Remains of the Day); Jeannine Oppewall, production designer (L.A. Confidential); Conrad L.
