    How to make your breakthrough movie.

    A first time director needs a survival guide, not an encyclopedia. Gil Bettman tells you everything you must know about the easy stuff — preproduction and postproduction — so you can convincingly discharge your duties as a director in those areas. More importantly, he arms you with the information and strategies to kill the demons that will be coming at you right and left on the set.

    You’ll learn how to:

    • Perfect your script and cast
    • Deal with your producer, cinematographer, First AD, editor and other key personnel
    • Move your camera and choose lenses that will capture the images in your head
    • Coax the best performance from any actor

    This book will enable you to pull form from chaos and make the best film possible —no matter your resources.
