Directing the Narrative and Shot Design: The Art and Craft of Directing (Hardback, B&W) (Series in Cinema and Culture)
This book is a “directing-altering book” as it provides high-quality learning resources that encourage and challenge film enthusiasts, aspiring directors, film students, and professionals to strive for new levels of excellence and impact in their film directing, television directing, and new media directing.
This book puts forward a well-informed and innovative discussion of critical director’s choices that have not previously been considered by existing texts on film and television directing. This book presents a wide range of directorial concepts and directing exercises that include:
• Psycho-physiological regularities in left-right/right-left orientation transferred to a shot design. How directors can manipulate the viewer’s perception of a character and of the journey they are on using screen direction.
• Methodology and visual strategy for rendering a scene based on character perspective.
• The directorial concept of emotional manipulation.
• Demystifying the 180-degree rule.
