"Making a movie is always a journey into uncharted territory. Hopefully we have a clear sense of the destination, but we also know that the road is likely to be fraught with hazards, detours, setbacks, and surprises. Fortunately, Mick Hurbis-Cherrier has provided us with a map. Voice & Vision is a thoughtful and stimulating, step-by-step guide through the entire filmmaking process from concept to distribution. The author offers an invaluable commentary on the art, craft, and technology that inform every stage of the creative journey. This is an essential and inspiring guide for the intrepid filmmaker. Don't leave home without it."

-Tomasz Malinowski, Professor, Edge Hill University, Ormskirk, England
"In this comprehensive and masterful volume, Hurbis-Cherrier's conversational tone allows each subject to be viewed in relationship to the others, creating a multi-disciplinary perspective that is thorough and thoughtful."
-Pablo Frasconi, Senior Lecturer, Production, USC School of Cinematic Arts
"The tone of the book works very well with my teaching style and pedagogy because it treats the student as part of a team that is working toward acquiring the knowledge and skills to make a movie. In that sense, I find the book to be not only informative but also very motivational."
-Ece Karayalcin, Professor, SEDT, Miami Dade College
"Hurbis-Cherrier (a professional who teaches at Hunter College) provides a comprehensive, well-organized resource for those interested in exploring the art and technique of narrative film...Though intended primarily for the classroom, this book should find a place in personal libraries as well. It will help even professionals expand their knowledge of the ever-evolving narrative format. Summing up: Recommended."
