Publisher Comments:

What the industry's most succcessful writers and directors have in common is that they have mastered the cinematic conventions specific to the medium.

Review:

"According to Wilkinson, numerous volumes have been devoted to the 'A' director who helms blockbusters. This snappily written, candid and informative book addresses the other 95% of the world's directors: working 'helmers' (Variety-speak for 'director') like Wilkinson who lack absolute power and must answer to producers. Told briskly, in the style of an old, trusted friend, this narrative about 'getting work, doing work, getting more work' recognizes the competitive nature of the business. But Wilkinson, who has directed independent features, network TV movies and TV shows, believes talented people can break through. He discusses the value of agents, assesses whether 'to schmooze or not to schmooze' and analyzes a director's responsibility to come up with a viable cast and valid ideas about film style, script, location, crew and shooting schedule. On a personal level, Wilkinson stresses the need for directors to recognize their strengths and weaknesses and gain a clear idea of how others see them. He covers multiple details of pre-production, casting, storyboarding, mixing, editing and choice of music. Above all, he emphasizes extreme care: after a take, a good director will say, 'That was perfect — we're going again.' That assertive precision is evident throughout this meticulously organized book, one that should prove highly useful for aspiring directors. Photos."
