Book Review: Short Films: …And How to Make Them (Creative Essentials)


Short Films: ...And How to Make Them (Creative Essentials)

Creative Essentials are nice compact size books and very well organized in content.  The information is accurate and comprehensive.  "Short Films" is no exception and provides a good deal but is not as useful as one would expect.  The information is borderline general and practical.  The person who reads Short Films will benefit from a good deal of information in that regards but still has a good deal to learn before finds one on track.  How-to books are good for learning the very practical stuff needed to get to work and succeed.  Short Films qualifies as a how-to but is provides a good deal of information adequate for career person who wants to be well rounded in their position rather than someone who is 100% about results.  I think it addresses a British filmmaker more than an American and comes across as a huge load of stuff only a little of which is needed for sure.
