"Fundamentals of Film Directing" is too general, better to call it "Film Directions for Actors"! Why actors? They are in front of the camera. Besides, I haven't seen a textbook for actors from the camera's POV.
Of course, there are main filmmaking topics to cover, but that all participants of the process could take a different look at actors and acting in film.
Five Parts. Now I have to bring the subject files from the main directory under one roof here.

Title Page


Part One. Scripting: Writing Movie

Part Two. PreProduction: Blue Prints

Part Three. Production: Shooting

Part Four. Post-Production: Editing

Part Five. Post-Post-Production: YOU



Only now I see how many parts are missing! The structure is in the left table (index).

I have to bring Eisen as a narrator, if I want to have a true narrative, but I do not hear his voice... How to get from quoting Eisenstein to letting him speak. Must introduce him as a character (hero); what is his story? Let him talk about what wasn't been done while he was alive. His reaction on 50+ years after his death (I was born in 1949) -- what would he see?

I have to arranged all parts (chapters) as lessons. Each pat has 5-6: the sequences are not the final choice (the order). Some could/should be dropped from the book (which ones?).

The homework assignments -- problem.

2004: the wrong textbook again?

Quotes: Nietzsche vs. Zen (two extremes) -- individual and god (when and how to use both, while directing).
