Description - Working Director by Chester A. Wilk
This book is not about where to put the camera. It's not about the great masters of the cinema. This book is about one thing: being hired to direct film and television. More to the point, this book is about how to make that happen and keep happening. Most directors, as you hopefully work your way towards 'A' status, are employees. You are hired to direct movies, TV films, episodes, documentaries. Sometimes the show turns out well. Sometimes not. Either way, short of a GBP10 million weekend or an Academy Award, no matter how the show turns out you're up against serious competition for every job. And there are things you do or neglect to do every day that affect your chances of being hired. That's what this book is about. "The Working Director" follows a linear format leading from a discussion of that all important first phone call on through prep, production and post, right up to getting your next and better job. It tells you how to get the job, do it well, and make the friends who will hire you to do the job again. Because producers hire and keep hiring working directors like you for a list of reasons so long it could fill a book. And it has.
This book is packed with top tips and practical advice taken from the author's first-hand experience as a top working director. It helps you learn how to get the job, do it well, and make the friends who will hire you to do the job again. All you need to know from the all important first phone call to on through prep, production, and post - right up to getting your next and better job!
