Book News Annotation:
LoBrutto (film editing and sound and production design, School of the Visual Arts, New York City) offers advice for professional, student, and amateur film makers on the various phases of film production design, consistently referring to examples from Hollywood movies. Describing the guide as being equally concerned with "why-to" as "how-to," he discusses screenplay visualization, design metaphors, research, working with the art department, pre-production, color, texture, architecture, period films, genres, budgets and schedules, studio and location work, guerilla filmmaking, and digital production design. The text might have been improved by the inclusion of more illustrations.
