Totally useful book

This book is a very detailed checklist of all aspects to keep in mind when creating a short film, pointing out common pitfalls and generally serving as a map of the whole process. I'll keep it at hand during my next project.

Great resource

I've read a lot of these books lately, and this is far and away the best of them. It has just the right amount of detail as well as being an easy read. It is extraordinarily practical and runs over many of the details that the other books I've read have skipped over. If you're making your first short film, this is the book to get, hands down!

An Excellent Starter Book

For a person curious about creating a short film, this book will help you. This book breaks down the function and importance of each individual person involved in the making of a short film, how certain problems were encountered and resolved, provides websites for other film affiliated tools and/or questions and answers, and points you to certain short films which can inspire you. A plus for anyone willing to get into movie production on short films.

Here is a excellent and important textbook that delivers!!

As an actor, interested in all aspects of film, I cannot imagine a more detailed and succinct introduction to this world. David Irving and Peter Rea have found a way to clarify all the difficult areas of film direction and production in one small wonderful book. All film students will be grateful.
