Directing & Producing for Television provides readers with the tools they need to help them direct and produce efficiently in a variety of settings. It is a vital resource that is based on the author's own experience in the industry and in university settings, where he found that students are adept at handling equipment but often lack actual production technique. This text addresses those critical details and outlines the demands of each format. The second edition has been significantly updated to reflect recent changes in common industry practice, as well as new camera, lighting and editing technologies. A new review section has been added to each chapter to reinforce students' understanding of the material and allow beginning professionals to work with the material most pertinent to their needs. The emphasis is on multiple camera television, although serious considerations is given to single camera production in those formats where single camera production is the predominant production technique (for example, documentaries and commercials/PSAs).
