Anatomy of a Guerrilla Film: The Making of RADIUS, does something that no other how-to filmmaking book does: it teaches filmmaking principles by taking readers through the process of making a real-world guerrilla film and then lets you watch the final film included on an accompanying DVD so readers can actually see the results of all the decisions, compromises, setbacks, and victories. First-time filmmaker and author Helmut Kobler believes that the best way to learn is by watching other people do something and then learning from their successes and mistakes. That philosophy is the concept behind this book. Written in clear, straightforward language for the first-time or beginning filmmaker, Anatomy of a Guerrilla Film: The Making of RADIUS, serves as a case-study for new filmmakers, allowing them to see the lessons and principles presented in the book come to life in the actual film. From start to finish, every step and process that encompasses making an independent film is covered, including preproduction, production, post production, and marketing and distribution. Different approaches to each step and process are covered, not just the approach used by the author.
Behind-the-scenes footage and commentary by the author on the included DVD clearly illustrate the steps making this book the most unique and hands-on guide to guerrilla filmmaking.
