... I do not think that I will be updating this directory. There are (too) many book on film directing. My interest was to see director as artist. And directing as film poetry "writing"...

This is a new directory, which I arranged like the Theatre Directing, Acting, Script Analysis -- eBOOK style.

So, in addition to the class syllabus I have to put the subject pages from the main directory in some order. Well, as you can see, I broke into traditional five major stages of making a movie.

    This class had many names: Elements of Film, Basic Filmmaking, Fundamentals... Most of my students come to the class after making some movies and my task is to help them in what they are doing anyway. The rules, the laws, the theory of film -- and the applications.


    "Directing the camera"? Who does it? Director... I have to stop and think about it. Don't we have the script, the drama, which asks for the forms of its expression? Is it why we place actors in the middle of the conflict, letting the to cary the action? Do they, actors, "direct" the camera? Or maybe even more radical -- spectators? Because camera answers their desires to SEE it! Here I have to stop again and give some thought about what is spectator...

    FILM Directing, Title

    2006 -- am I to give up on film-north pages?
    This time I will try the linear narrative. From Intro to PS -- the way the class will go.

    I made this directory, because some subjects or areas are not covered in the main directory Film-North and in its sub-directories.

    The five main parts:

    Part I. Script: Development
    Part II. PreProduction
    Part III. Production
    Part IV. PostProduction
    Part V. Everything Else

    [ Keep in mind, this is only the notes, read the textbook for details! ]

    [ 2008 ]

    I have a second (third) thought about this directory and the class: even I am to call it "FilmMaking 101," it's not Film Directing class (not real one), more an introduction to film directing. Should I call it "Film Directing for All"? "How to Use Film Language Shooting Video"?

    TEXTBOOK: Directing by Michael Rabiger

    Focal Press 3rd ed.

    [ Spring 2004 Textbook: "Grammar of the Film Language" by Daniel Arijon. Written from (mostly) editor's POV. "Camera only rules"? ]


    How to use the textbook together with the webpages?

    Read your syllabus page please; print and keep it in your notebook!


    Read (and print the webpages). Bookmark the site, follow the updates.

    Read film.vtheatre.net: I want to use film directing pages for other film classes (Film&Movies, for example, or/and 200X), there will be some changes to accomodate the new tasks -- you already see the "bars" like "topics" or/and "themes".


    My Theatre Acting and Directing pages are better develeoped (I teach those classes more often). I strongly recommend that before reading the pages in Film Directing you go through the STAGEMATRIX, the Fundamentals of Direction!

    List of topics & subjects this textbook (Grammar of the film Language) doesn't cover:
    1. Aesthetics (Analysis and Theory)
    2. Script (Grammar of Drama)
    3. Philosophy is missing -- and not in this book only. What is "cut"? Semiotics.
    600 pp. in 10 weeks?

    Summary: too general, too broad, about everything. Overview the position of a director, not analysis of the craft.
    Explain the difference between directors and filmmakers. Movies and films. Why do we need so many different words?

    [ the subject pages from the main directory filmplus.org are not incorporated ]


    [ mostly the classics: Eisenstein, Bergman, Kurosawa, Fellini, Tarkovsky -- and mostly about the aesthetics of cinema ]
