Publisher Comments:

Documentary films have enjoyed a huge resurgence over the last few years, and there's a new generation of filmmakers wanting to get involved. In addition, the digital revolution has made documentaries even more accessible to the general filmmaker. Documentary films can now be shot professionally using cheaper equipment, and smaller cameras enable the documentarian to be less intrusive and therefore more intimate in the subjects' lives. With an increasing number of documentaries making it to the big screen (and enjoying ongoing sales on DVD), the time is right for an information-packed handbook that will guide new filmmakers towards potential artistic and commercial success.

The Documentary Film Makers Handbook features incisive and helpful interviews with dozens of industry professionals, on subjects as diverse as interview techniques, the NBC News Archive, music rights, setting up your own company, the Film Arts Foundation, pitching your proposal, the Sundance Documentary Fund, the Documentary Channel, the British Film Council, camera hire, filmmaking ethics, working with kids, editing your documentary, and DVD distribution.

The book also includes in-depth case studies of some of the most successful and acclaimed documentary films of recent years, including Mad Hot Ballroom, Born Into Brothels, Touching the Void, Beneath the Veil,and Amandla!

The Documentary Film Makers Handbook will be an essential resource for anyone who wants to know more about breaking into this exciting field.

Book News Annotation:

Jolliffe and Zinnes, building on their previous book on guerrilla film making, turn to over 100 experts on all aspects of making documentaries, including finding subjects, getting funded, exercising appropriate ethics, dealing with censorship, distributing and, of course, the all-important budgeting and fundraising. Their experts give practical advice on getting training, setting up the legal aspects of your work, making the most of film organizations, writing, working with broadcasters and production companies, getting a global perspective, conducting production and post-production, and marketing. They also offer case studies of two dozen significant films, including several for which the filmmakers actually did get to thank their moms and the academy. The result is both hopeful and realistic.

Great information, lots of typos. It's a good thing these folks are making movies and not writing papers. I'll be posting a more lengthy review on my blog for Independent Documentary Filmmakers at
