You will also learn how to spot potential problems before they cost you time or money, and creative solutions to solve them.
Best of all, Directing the Story practices what it preaches; Francis uses a graphic novel format to demonstrate the professional visual storytelling techniques you need to know!
Francis Glebas has put together a really comprehensive and thought-provoking look at the art and craft of film making, specifically directing. His approach, which is to ask a lot of seemingly innocent questions, has much the same effect as the good storytelling he is trying to teach us.it draws us in and makes us think. I can’t imagine anyone, in or out of our business, who won’t find any number of helpful ideas as they work their way through the filmmaking jungles!!
