'A comprehensive manual that teaches the essentials of filmmaking from the perspective of the director. Ideal for film production and directing classes, as well as for professionals with sights on the director's chair, Directing covers all stages of production, from idea development to final cut. Thoroughly covering the basics, Directing guides the reader to professional standards of control and goes to the heart of what makes a great director. All the "hoe to" information is unified by a theory that naturally links personal experience and vision to the director's decision making and stresses that understanding one's own emotional and perceptual process is the key to individuality on the screen and to success with audiences.'
