Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Film Book Ever I was given this book, thinking that it was just another poorly-written tutorial about how to shoot home movies. Boy was I wrong. This book is probably the best film book i've ever come across, and i would recomend it to anyone thinking about teaching a film or media course

From Our Editors

Film Directing Shot by Shot is a complete catalogue of visual techniques and their stylistic implications for both the filmmaker and videomaker -- a "textbook" which enables working filmmakers (as well as screenwriters and others) to expand their stylistic knowledge. Extensively illustrated -- comparisons of cinematic techniques using illustrated and photographic storyboards -- and well-written, it should find an audience among both seasoned and novice filmmakers.

Editorial Reviews

"Now that you???ve got a couple of shorts under your belt, why not get a little more analytic? Steven Katz??'s book gives a great breakdown of the fundamentals of film directing. It??'s not something you might want to start off by reading, but once you are ready to have your films take that next step this should be number one on your to do list. Katz breaks down film language for you so that you can learn how to speak it in your own way." - www.austinfilmfestival.com
