Learn More about the Book

Basics Film-Making: Directing Fiction introduces the essential aspects of the directorial process, focusing on the requirements of short films while also drawing on classic examples from the world of feature films. It looks at the tricky balancing act of art and business, offering guidelines and basic principles rather than instructions.

The chapters are interspersed with case studies investigating the working practices of leading professionals such as Robert Rodriguez, and Mike Leigh.

"Basics Film-Making: Directing Fiction" examines classic movies to illustrate key concepts and provides exercises designed to test and build on your understanding of directing. There is also an insightful interview with Mark Herman, director of classic films such as "Brassed Off," "Little Voice" and "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas."
