The Working Film Director by Charles Wilkinson

by Peter D. Marshall

Charles Wilkinson is a film director and a friend of mine and he has written the 2nd Edition of his very popular book, “The Working Director” which was first published in 2005. Here is the website for Charles Wilkinson:

The Working Film Director is not about where to put the camera. It’s not about the great masters of cinema. This book is about ONE thing: being hired to direct film and television, again and again.

You’re up against serious competition for every directing job and there are things you do or neglect to do every day that affect your chances of being hired.

From that all-important first phone call through prep, production and post, right up to getting your next and better job, Charles Wilkinson tells you how to get the job, do it well, and make the friends who will hire you to do the job again.

Charles’ publisher has given me permission to show you the first 26 pages of this latest book. This new 2nd edition adds an up-to-the-minute focus on the current realities facing the entry-level director, the filmmaker looking to move up, and the once-established director looking for a fresh approach.
