Geared towards films students and beginning filmmakers, Producing and Directing the Short Film and Video, from Focal Press, provides a two-fold approach that looks at filmmaking from the perspective of both the producer and director, and clearly explains how their separate roles must work together to create a successful short film or video. Through extensive examples from award-winning shorts and insightful interviews, authors Peter Rea and David K. Irving will show you common challenges the filmmakers encountered during each step of the filmmaking process—from pre-production to production, post-production, and distribution—and the techniques they used to overcome them.
