This review is from: Basics Film-Making: Directing Fiction (Paperback)
Directing Fiction by Robert Edgar-Hunt I found to be a very interesting piece that had a easy to follow contents. It covers from pre production (script, storyboard, casting ect) production (working on image, sound, actors ect) post production (editing copyright ect) and gives an in deep look into each step of making a fiction and looks at techniques that are useful for any budding film maker, students or anyone who just wants an interesting read. It's like one of the `For Dummies' books but without the pointless basics that everyone knows and the lack of colour as this is a vibrant piece in both content and colour. On an educational front it gives you case studies to look at and also for both non students and students alike there are exercises after each chapter which again are things to look at which will help you progress as a director and film maker. As a student I feel this book is a guide for me because it also touches on every element of film making fiction and gives good references to films and film makers alike. In short this book gives a educational yet stylish, sexy and slick look at directing fiction.
