Film Directing Fundamentals, 3rd Ed will guide you through the process of translating a script to the screen. The ability and talent of taking a screenplay and transforming it to a real movie is one that takes time and practice.

Starting with a basic script, the author takes you through the analysis stage of the words and how you then morph it into a movie. The book doesn't presume that you are a seasoned director but takes you through the process from step one - a learning process. Along with the book there is a sample screenplay that magnifies the concepts taught within the book.
