Despite the increasing popularity of academic filmmaking programs in the United States, some of contemporary America s most exciting film directors have emerged from the theater world. "Directors: From Stage to Screen and Back Again" features a series of interviews with directors who did just that, transitioning from work on stage productions to work in television and on full-length features.Taken together, these interviews demonstrate the myriad ways in which a theater background can engender innovative and stimulating work in film. As unique and idiosyncratic as the personalities they feature, the directors conversations with Susan Lehman range over a vast field of topics. Each one traces its subject s personal artistic journey and explores how he or she handled the challenge of moving from stage to screen. Combined with a foreword by Emmy award winning screenwriter Steve Brown, the directors collective knowledge and experience will be invaluable to scholars, aspiring filmmakers, theater aficionados, and film enthusiasts."
