KIRKUS REVIEW

Instruction and guidance for the serious student of theatre and filmed TV in detailed coverage. Every angle, from the writing to the script, from mechanics to techniques is thoroughly defined and described; procedures, classifications, ideas, themes, plot and characters, dramatic values are all analyzed, and illustrated; filmic components and the science and use of the camera; script techniques and their translation into physical performances;- this is an almost encyclopedic how to do it and what to avoid -- even to the little point of what and what not to name your characters. Definitely for class and reference work. Illustrated with half-tones.
