Description - John Badham on Directing by John Badham

Veteran director John Badham explains the elements of action and suspense and dissects the essentials of any good scene from any genre. Badham's list of "12 Questions You Must Ask Before Stepping On Set" is an absolute must in any filmmaker's toolbox. Whether actor, director, cinematographer, production designer, or any other creative, Badham gives you the tools to deconstruct and solve scenes that either don't work or need sharpening. Continuing the work begun in his best-selling book I'll Be In My Trailer , Badham shares more insights into working with difficult actors, rehearsal techniques, and getting the best performance from your cast.
