Description de "On Film-making: An Introduction to the Craft of the Director"

A priceless examination of the filmmaker's craft, from the renowned director of Sweet Smell of SuccessAfter more than twenty years in the film industry as a screenwriter, storyboard editor, and director of memorable films such as The Ladykillers, Alexander Mackendrick turned his back on Hollywood and began a new career as the Dean of one of the country's most demanding and influential film schools. His absolute devotion to the craft of filmmaking served as a powerful impetus to students at the California Institute for the Arts for almost twenty five years, with a teaching style that included prodigious notes, neatly crafted storyboards, and handouts containing excerpts of works by Kierkegaard, Aristotle, and others. At the core of Mackendrick's lessons lay a deceptively simple goal: to teach aspiring filmmakers how to structure and write the stories they want to tell, while using the devices particular to the medium of film to tell their stories effectively. In this impressive volume, edited by Paul Cronin, the myriad materials that made Mackendrick's reputation as an instructor are collected for the first time, offering a chance for professionals as well as students to discover a methodology of filmmaking that is challenging yet refreshing in its clarity. Meticulously illustrated and drawing on examples from such classic films as North by Northwest, Citizen Kane, and Touch of Evil, Mackendrick's elegant lessons are sure to provide inspiration for a new generation of filmmakers. Alexander Mackendrick directed several films, including The Man in the White Suit, which earned him an Oscar Nomination for Screenwriting. He died in 1993. Paul Cronin is the editor of Herzog on Herzog.

"This quite remarkable book—I know nothing in print that is quite like it—records in painstaking yet fascinating detail the options available to the director as he prepares to shoot and as he does so . . . On Film-making is a sampling of the handouts, often illustrated by his own sketches, that [the author] presented to students over the years. Using these papers, as coherently edited by Paul Cronin, the attentive student could, I think, make quite a respectable film—well-structured and technically proficient . . . He gives many instructive examples of how meaning can be fully conveyed through action, not dialogue, shortening running time and enlivening our visual pleasure."—Richard Schickel, Los Angeles Times "This quite remarkable book—I know nothing in print that is quite like it—records in painstaking yet fascinating detail the options available to the director as he prepares to shoot and as he does so . . .
