The book is a good read, there is a lot of potent information here, however some of the author’s descriptions could use a few more illustrations; For example when he describes scenes from certain movies it can become confusing if you haven’t seen each of those films. Never the less the book is a good read.
OUTSTANDING BOOK THAT IS INTERACTIVE

This book is an entirely interactive book as it contains a CD-rom that has a 3d storyboarding software that makes it absolutely remarkable in being able to manipulate the images in the book to experiment with concepts and precepts that the author is knowingly speaking about. The Directors Guild of America calls this book the definitive book for directors and encourages not only those who are learning to direct but those who already direct to hacve this book in their library. It is told from a very easy and understandable perspective and full of practical stuff about telling stories, saving production time during production, working with talent, directing various forms of television and most of all what it means to do coverage to tell stories. This is one book that you must have!

“Read, read, read,” says Schreibman and he might as well be talking about THE FILM DIRECTOR PREPARES, as essential to the actor as to anybody and everybody else who ever worked on a set. This is the book — fascinating and entirely accessible — to afford each of us an extra dollop of confidence in approaching a role, a rehearsal, a conversation about how to play a scene; to give actors an understanding of why directors make the choices they do and how we can best serve the vision of the whole. Wish I’d had this book years and years ago and I’m so glad to have it now!
