Editorial Reviews

Jason proves that top-notch production values are within the reach of anyone who has ever dreamt of making his own movie. Jason knows what he''s talking about because he''s actually done it! - Steve Skrovan, Executive Producer, "Everybody Loves Raymond" There are no wasted words in Tomaric''s tome, which concisely summarizes each facet of the director''s craft. It''s difficult to think of a step in the process that Tomaric fails to address. -Jim Hemphill, American Cinematographer Magazine
