    4-0 out of 5 stars Turthful?
    First of all, I am one of many hundred of thousands who are wannabe screenwriters/writers. I do not live in L.A. and have no intention to. That being said, I am still learning the "industry".
    5-0 out of 5 stars To be brief, I liked it
    Briefly -- I enjoyed this book immensely.Whether it's any good as advice to aspiring writers I couldn't say, but I hope its audience won't be limited just to them.It's made up of short punchy bits that didn't tax my attention span, and many of them were laugh out loud funny.It won't be appreciated by those who don't care for rough language, but, having read two of the author's previous works, I was pretty well prepared for that and found it actually rather milder than expected.It had little relevance to my own life & hard times, and it won't revolutionize my world.Nevertheless it was worth the time and money.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The new WGA guidelines.... (psych)
    Okay, this book has been out long enough for there to be more than one review, so to show my support, I have to add one here since I missed his book tour in SF by a mere TWO days. I can't believe it. I just don't read newspapers at all anymore. Didn't the book come out in August? But they wouldn't tour him in August. It's like December: business shuts down like a Jewish girl after her wedding night. Just as well. What would I have done, anyway? Lurk? Smile? Try and say something unusual and charming? Not gonna happen. Book tours are exhausting so speed-dating an author with a series of blurts is too much. Best to read his blog on his site of his own name. I'll remove this review later on because I like to be private (I remove all my reviews), but this is a cockfight of a book, quick stabs, perfectly designed for actual writers with attention spans too short to actually READ real paragraphs anymore. It's got so much teeth-baring energy and the irreverence of someone who can handle running into anyone on the street. We're talking COURAGE, baby. No cowering here. [By the way, writer/artist friends, read Rollo May's THE COURAGE TO CREATE to see this all diagrammed out.]

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice
    Was anyone ever described to you as "nice"?Scary isn't it.I am an ardent fan of Deadwood and a fan of David Milch.This book is a `nice' coffee-table addition that succeeds as a way of fondly recollecting the characters and singular moments of Deadwood.I was hoping for an extension and an amplification of Deadwood -more great Black Hill's tales from Milch's magic pen.In that respect, the book is disappointing.

    4-0 out of 5 stars For Fans of Air America
    Not a bad book, but it's really NOT for those of a conservative bent. If you enjoy Air America, you WILL enjoy this book. I was a bit disappointed that the book has so much non original material. A few too many transscripts from the Air America shows, but still, over all a good, though lite, read.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Air America, R.I.P.
    Whenever I'm in L.A., I like to find Air America and listen for pure entertainment value (Air America didn't last in Phoenix and lost its station to yet another Spanish channel a couple of years ago).I would listen to Randi Rhodes' nightly meltdown over some vote in Congress and seriously wonder who on earth could listen to these people without wanting to slit their own wrists after a few shows.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great book for filmmakers of all kinds
    this book includes all kinds of useful information that is not necessarily specific to documentary, although that is it's focus.there's excercises in here to help develop ideas into a filmic narrative, ethics, how to tackle an interview as well as subject matter.i've read a lot of film books, and i have to say, this is not only well written with a sense of humor and wit, it deals with potential situations in a down to earth way. The information provided is not just technical, but also how to approach an emotional situation, gain the trust of your participants, and address multiple points of view.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Directing The Documentary
    I am currently writing a documentary for a feature length film, and found Michael Rabiger's book informative, subtle, and well structured. Having received a documentary film class at University, I had already learned about the basic tools of the medium. This book provides a masterclass in documentary filmmaking, and prepares you for the demands of documentary filmmaking. I recommend it to students and professionals alike.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Tips From An Expert
    It was an enlightment for me to have this book, i always like how Rabiger tried to dig in our passion of filmmaking, with his previous books also. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Rosetta Stone of Hypertext
    This huge tome is a must have for anyone who wants to deeply understand hypertext and its precursors. From William Burroughs to Doug Englebart and Augosto Boal to Ted Nelson this book presents a huge range of articles (and discursive commentary) of interest to computer scientists, writers, new media workers, artists and everyone in between. This is one stop shopping for new media literacy with over 800 pages of good stuff, much of it very hard to find outside of this volume.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Well done!
    Fascinating, thorough in its analysis, beautifully designed reader/player.Good, well-rounded selection of texts and new media objects with no attempt to be exhaustive (to the editors' credit).I plan to use it as one of the texts in an upcoming university course. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great starter book for AC's
    Of the two major "textbooks" on ACing, this is the best one to start with. It gives enough information to initiate you into what is expected of all members of the camera crew, but is not overwhelming with technical info (not that you are not going to want that info someday, but if you are new, it can be confusing and even discouraging.) After this book, get David Elkin's Camera Assistant's Manual, which goes into much further detail. As you work with different cameras, download the manuals from the panavision/arri/aaton/etc websites so you can feel comfortable with the differences in individual cameras. Lastly, get a used copy of the very expensive American Cinematographer Manual for all the technical bits in one handy portable reference book. This, and tons of set experience, is probably all you need (and keep in mind some of the greatest cinematographers who ever lived worked without any of these aids). Rely on your eye!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Camera Assistant - A Complete Pro Handbook(Hart)
    This is probably the best handbook for this discipline I've ever seen.I bought a copy when I was in the States three years ago - and it was swiped!I plan to prescribe this book for my students from 2001 onwards.Well done !5-0 out of 5 stars The bible for operating camera personnel!
    This book is a complete and highly insightful manual for motion picture camera assistants and operators. It covers the disciplines, techniques, skills and even the politics of the craft. For anyone involved or wanting afabulous look into the workings of the film industry, buy this book! ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Pleased but not overwhelmed
    I am not sure what I had expected for a teaching format but my initial reactionto the book was that it was too cartoony for the structure I was looking for in the human body and expression.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazingly helpful!
    I had to do a full costume presentation with renderings for 6 characters for my class and I was so lost! I am not an artist at all, so I got this book and it helped me so much. It explained everything in detail and my renderings came out great! I would definitely recommend this book for beginners and experienced alike!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Everything You Need to Know
    I bought this book because I had a project to do on costume rendering, and I know very little about it.Now, thanks to Tan Huaixiang, I know so much.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This thing's a beast
    This is 600 pages packed with deep analysis.It will take a while to read, but you will probably know more than many Hollywood directors by the time you finish it.
    5-0 out of 5 stars Just what I wanted
    This book helped me to understand the inner philosophy of cinema and its techniques. I'm a Director in film and tv industry. I tried to find resources about the art of my specialty. This book is what I wanted it's writing about Low budget film making but in a totally profecional way. I was so bored of these books writing about the "HOLLYWOOD" filmmaking standards. I appreciate that this book brings the art of Cinema in the hands of ordinary people, with no money to make the "extraordinary production" films but in people which trying to find the real essence of Cinema.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Plain speak on directing
    I have read many books on directing, and recently been directed my first project with a real budget, real crew. This book is the best for learning the production process, and covers it all in a plain-speak nuts & bolts fashion. A great resource ro prepare a director who wants to work at the professional level. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars good book. too much information in one book.
    I bought it 1 month ago and I haven't finished it yet. it's more of a reference book. I refer to it quite a bit. her writing has flow and easy to understand. I personally don't like "dummies" series but this one is good.
    2-0 out of 5 stars A lot of academic theory but nothing practical.
    First, I would like to make clear, or to put it more aptly, this book was written by an academic and not someone who is in the actual business. In other words, lots of theory but nothing practical to back it up. If I'm not mistaken, the author has never, ever actually written a screenplay and have it produced.
    4-0 out of 5 stars A great resource!
    This book is a great resource for anybody who's ever wanted to write in film. It gives you a great method for writing with a structure, good examples, and information on how to get your script looked at. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that it gives a lot of outside links to publishing newspapers and Hollywood industry insider reports online and there were two table of contents instead of one, that was a little confusing when I was referring back to it, later. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Do not drive and listen. . .
    Made the mistake of listening to this on a drive to New Orleans.Usually takes two hours.However, when you have to pull the car over and laugh, it can take about three or four hours.Taking out the CD and arriving quicker was not an option - as long as there is a drive-through fast food joint close to the highway.The news from Lake Wobegon has become a letter from home over the past years, and, it will erase any damage you have had from your own family!!
    5-0 out of 5 stars Full of Hearty Laughs and Poignant Moments
    If you're not familliar with Garrison Keillor's stories of small-town, Midwestern life, check to see when his program is aired on your local NPR station. His radio program (called A Prarie Home Companion) is full of esoteric music, old fashioned comic sketches, and amusing interviews, but the real treats are his delightfull and insightfull Lake Wobegon yarns, which is what these tapes are full of. If I could give this 4 tape set 6 stars I would, but 5 will have to do. Included is a story about a Sunday school teacher's husband, who gets roped into managing the Christmas pagent at the last minute and must deal with debates over allowing live animals into the church, children with stage fright, and conspiracies to keep local Lutherans from getting into the Catholic church to watch the spectacle. Another favorite is The Six Labors of Father Wilmer, in which a battle between a priest and a parishoner leads to a cleric, in his pajamas, on a 20 foot ladder, at 3 am, trying to rid the church of the evil" of mecury lighting. Of course there's Sweet Corn, in which we learn about the secret aphrodisiac of the Midwest. Another good story is Blue Devils, in which we witness the progress of an overly competitive, all-girl's basketball team through the eyes of anxious parents, who try to make sense of sweet, blonde, little girls--who kiss mothers before joining the game, but are soon seen elbowing enemies to the floor and uttering words that have never been allowed in the house. All in all, there are 17 monologues and some music between stories...making about 5 hours of good, old-fashioned-but-liberal-minded entertainment. If you're looking for another good (probably better!) Keillor set, go for Life These Days. I guarentee you'll crack up.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Well written, but content is misguided
    I read this book, as well as others, because I'm taking a stab at filming a screenplay with some other people.I have enjoyed some of the other dummies books, but I thought this one was off target.It is very high level.For example, in the first or second chapter, he goes over what the job roles are for the production assistant, and ten other job titles you might see at the end of a Hollywood movie, and I'm thinking to myself, am I really going to have a full-time grip on my movie?I was hoping this book would focus on the nuts and bolts of making a small-budget / zero-budget film, but it talked about numbers that apply to people who aren't going to be reading a dummies book. On the whole, I thought it was a real surface look at independent filmmaking, and would be appropriate for someone who wanted to learn about it, but not do it. You would be better off buying IFILM Filmmakers Handbook and some individual books on lighting and sound if you really want information about how to make your own film.A lot of the information in this book can be found on the web, also.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A great glimpse of pre-TV entertainment
    From spooky to absolutely hokey, this collection of radio mysteries from the 1940s is a wonderful glimpse into entertainment before the advent of the tube. Almost as interesting as the mysteries themselves are the commercials and public service announcements (such as the one for War Bonds by Orson Welles).
    3-0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected
    I thought that this collection of stories were going to be "mysteries," something more along the lines of detectives, crimes, and sleuthing. What it turned out to be was a collection of good radio dramas that were more accounts of "strange happenings" and "thrillers." The audio quality was good and the stories were well done, I just think that the CD's were a bit misleading in their titles.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great on A Saturday Afternoon
    My 7 year old (and of course mee too) loves all three of these.He'll actually sit still for hours and listen to them, and race to the CD player waiting for me to change discs. It was dissapointong to see these broadcasts get progressivly smaller with each movie. From 7 in the first, to 5 in the second, and the Return only three CD's long.The last is almost nothing but the movie, with very little additional material.It's still good, but after lstening to A New Hope, The Return of The Jedi feels very short.I would highly reccommend these.They're great for those cold or raining Saturday acfternoons.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Complete Star Wars Trilogy Radio Dramas, WONDERFUL SHOWS!!!
    How did Luke come to know Biggs? How did Leia get the Death Star plans? What happened to her in her cell after Darth Vader came in with the interrogation droid? How did Luke become a Commander? These questions, which have been asked by many fans, are answered in the original radio dramatizations of the Star Wars Trilogy. Since some readers may be considering the purchase of one of the dramas or possibly the whole set, I will endeavor to give details of all the dramas. Please note that this is an in-depth review of all three dramas and is therefore somewhat more lengthy than many reviews you will encounter. If you would prefer a shorter review please feel free to scroll to the next review. I will start with the original Star Wars drama from 1981...

    5-0 out of 5 stars A completely professional approach
    The thing about this book is that it is written from a completely professional point of view.It deals with lighting as it is really practiced on professional movie sets - not like most books on cinematography which seem to be written by people who haven't actually done it all that much in the real world. I've bought about every book there is on movie lighting and most of them are a waste of money. 3-0 out of 5 stars A good lighting manual for a beginning cameraperson.
    Blaine Brown's book provides a decent explanation of set lighting, it'sinstruments and protocol. The text, though, seems to speak more to thecameraperson or AC who is curious about lighting. There is a lack ofattention given to the juicers and hammers who are actually creating andshaping the light. There is a considerable amount of text granted toelectrics and the distribution of power, but much more thorough and muchmore practically explained definitions are readily available in Harry Box's"Set Lighting Technician's Handbook." ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars it rocks
    I am a huge gunsmoke fan, since it first was shown in 1955.i thought it was interesting on how they auditioned and chose the main charcters,I enjoyed this more than the 50th year, due to the fact that Miss Kitty, was alive and others that were guest star were also.It was not a boring book and the layout was very good.They also had an interview of Roger Ewing (Thad) Which was informative.I highly recommned paying the price for it to all Gunsmoke fans.)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile Reading!
    This was a very good, very well written and very informative book to buy and read.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Valuable Reference for Gunsmoke Fans
    I never thought I'd ever pay $85 for a book, but this book is worth every penny to anyone who is interested in the Gunsmoke radio and TV show characters and stories. The 836 page book is divided into sections about Gunsmoke history, photos of the cast and supporting crew, episode descriptions, and several appendices. The TV series ran from 1955 to 1975. Reruns are still shown on TVland.

    5-0 out of 5 stars stop reading now and buy it....
    There's nothing else like this, except Moon Over Morocco, the more or less sequel to 4th Tower. If you want to be swept away into another world, put on good headphones, turn off your phone, cellphone, computer, etc., and enter another reality. Everything reviewers have said is true, but nothing can express how good this is. Buy it and listen over and over..... owoooooo, return to those thrilling days of yesteryear, to Inverness Mansion, the house with doors hinged on time, windows like a thousand eyes turned inwards....

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent fun and philosophy
    I first heard this over public radio years ago when I was just a kid. I was so delighted to find it on Amazon last week. Hearing it both took me back to childhood and, even better, now I get a lot more out of it. My whole family is huddled around the CD player at night. Not quite the same as radio, but at least my children are getting a taste of radio drama.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very clear and precise for the unexperienced tv professional
    As a first time TV show co-producer, I wanted a simple approach on learning the basics of TV directing and producing. This book has given me everything I needed to start understanding the technical aspects of the business. Now I can express my ideas more clearly to the show director and the crew, and even though this is not my primary career this book has made easier my introduction in the business.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to read and broad in its focus
    First and perhaps most important, this book is easy to read. It doesn't talk about technical things, but instead goes right to the heart of the matter: what you have to know if you're going to direct or produce a program. It also covers a broad range of shows--almost every format except sports and game shows. For the most part it describes multiple camera television directing, but that's used as a basis for understanding single camera TV. And there are chapters in which single camera television plays a significant role, most notably when Cury goes into documentary and PSA directing. I particularly liked the "who's who" at the facility, which covers the functions of those who work in television--from the executive producer to talent.

    5-0 out of 5 stars �Excellent Book For People Interested in TV Production!
    After reading this book, I have become a better producer and a better person.This book can help anyone from a student to a BIG TIME director.It is very clear in explaining the routine and features to help your show come together.A++ ... Read more
