Description - Live Cinema and Its Techniques by Francis Ford Coppola
Celebrated as an "exhilarating account" of a revolutionary new medium (Booklist), Francis Ford Coppola's indispensable guide to live cinema is a boon for moviegoers, film students, and teachers alike. As digital movie-making, like live sports, can now be performed by one director-or by a collaborative team online- it is only a matter of time before cinema auteurs will create "live" movies to be broadcast instantly in faraway theaters. "Peppered with brilliant personal observations" (Wendy Doniger), Live Cinema and Its Techniques offers a behind-the-scenes look at a consummate career: from Coppola's formative boyhood obsession with live 1950s television shows and later attempts to imitate the spontaneity of live performance on set, the book usefully includes a guide to presenting state-of-the-art techniques on everything from rehearsals to equipment. A testament to Coppola's prodigious enthusiasm for reinvigorating the form, Live Cinema is an indispensable guide that "reenergizes . . . the search for a new way of storytelling" (William Friedkin).
