The definitive A to Z course on the intricacies of film, from one of America’s most distinguished film professors.
Each entry in this remarkable book—which represents a lifetime of teaching film—has already inspired and educated several generations of Hollywood’s greatest filmmakers and writers. This book examines the patterns and principles that make films popular and memorable, and is equally useful both to those who want to create films and to those who just want to understand them better.
“Howard Suber’s understanding of film storytelling fills the pages of this wise, liberating book. Much of it is surprisingly contrary to what ‘everyone knows.’ A remarkable work.” —Francis Ford Coppola
