THE FILM DIRECTOR PREPARES  - About the book


Films are made in their preparation, and this book is the missing manual. Step by step, it will take you through the entire pre-production process, starting out by defining what the director is actually there to do - some of you will be surprised! It will go on to explain:


How to read a script * How to shape your ‘vision’ * How work out your shots and your visual style * How to select your crew * How to cast your actors


And everything else you need to do before you’re ready to shout ‘Action’!
