About this book... You have just picked up this book.... You are drawn in by the cover ... nice, unusual. You immediately flip over to the back. Here you are. If you like what it says... you may buy the book. So what's it about, then? Well, I'll tell you what it's not about. It's not about the technical side of filmmaking: camera lenses, what's a wide shot, f/stop, how to fund or flog a film. No. None of that. What it is about is the art of communication in the film industry: who you talk to to get started, how you conduct yourself on set, what are the key human skills to be a success in this wonderful career called filmmaking. And to help me help you to further understand how people get on with each other, or not, I have gathered together some amazing video interviews with a whole bunch of successful creatives: directors, producers, grips, art directors, writers, visual effects artists, editors and more. These include Matt Eastwood, Aussie boy and now Chief Creative Officer of DDB New York; Andrew Rowlands, another Aussie lad now steadicam operator in Hollywood (Gangs of New York, The Departed, etc); Mark Renton, also from The Land Down Under and for years the go-to visual effects supervisor in LA (Minority Report, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc.); not to mention Josh Canalini a young, energetic offline editor, now working on The Hobbit Trilogy at Weta Digital in NZ, from Perth, Australia. Do you see a pattern here? It's all about these people following a dream. It didn't happen overnight, but it did happen. They worked bloody hard and used some solid skills to get where they are. Those skills are waiting for you inside. Now buy the book and be enlightened.... informed and entertained. Cheers, Ross.
