Transitions: A Director’s Journey and Motivational Handbook

transitions-directors-journey-motivational-handbook ,

Pete Chatmon is one of Hollywood’s most sought-after directors. In Transitions he has created the definitive guide to the psychology and techniques of directing for television.

Becoming a director is not just about making a film, webseries, commercial, or music video. The opportunity to direct for television is not a given because you’ve successfully completed a project in another medium.

Turning your passion into your profession requires the ability to make transitions at the exact moment a pivot is needed, with creativity and confidence. Chatmon’s book helps directors across all mediums shape their career with targeted anecdotes, worksheets, and other resources, all of which fall into three designated categories: How-To, Self-Help, and Inspiration.
