Producing and Directing the Short Film and Video, Fifth Edition is the definitive book on the subject for the serious film student or beginning filmmaker. Its unique two-fold approach looks at filmmaking from the perspectives of both the producer and director, and clearly explains how their separate roles must work together to create a successful short film or video. Through extensive examples from award-winning shorts and insightful interviews, you will learn about common challenges the filmmakers encountered during each step of filmmaking process-from preproduction to production, postproduction, and distribution-and the techniques they used to overcome them.

In celebrating this book's twentieth anniversary, this edition has been updated to include:

Two all-new, in-depth cases studies of esteemed short films-Memory Lane and the Academy Award-winning God of Love

A revised chapter progression that reinforces the significance of the actor - director relationship

Interviews with the filmmakers integrated alongside the text, as well as new images and behind-the-scenes coverage of production processes

Revamped sections on current financing strategies, postproduction workflows, and the wide variety of distribution platforms now available to filmmakers

A "Where are They Now" appendix featuring updates on the original filmmakers covered in the first edition

An expanded companion website (www.focalpress.com/cw/rea) containing useful forms and information on distributors, grants and financing sources, film and video festivals, film schools, internet sources for short works, and professional associations

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Producing and Directing the Short Film and Video, Fifth Edition is a practical, accessible and absolutely necessary resource for the aspiring filmmaker; a candid, behind-the-scenes look at filmmaking written by two legendary film school professors."

- Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, Director, American Horror Story; Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

"From cover to cover, Rea and Irving have done a great job of not only updating their seminal book on producing and directing shorts to reflect today's ever-changing production world, but have also reorganized to reflect a more nimble, independent production system. Their use of quotations from a wide range of filmmakers also keeps the text lively and contemporary."

- Larry Engel, DGA, WGAE, Filmmaker and Professor, American University

"A thoughtful and comprehensive guide to all aspects of making a short film. I wish a practical, nuts-and-bolts guide like this had existed when I was a film student."

- Susan Seidelman, Director, Desperately Seeking Susan; Smithereens; Sex in the City; The Electric Company; Stella
