On Film-making: An Introduction to the Craft of the Director
On Film-making: An Introduction to the Craft of the Director
A priceless examination of the filmmaker's craft, from the renowned director of Sweet Smell of Success

After more than twenty years in the film industry as a screenwriter, storyboard editor, and director of memorable films such as The Ladykillers, Alexander Mackendrick turned his back on Hollywood and began a new career as the Dean of one of the country's most demanding and influential film schools. His absolute devotion to the craft of filmmaking served as a powerful impetus to students at the California Institute for the Arts for almost twenty five years, with a teaching style that included prodigious notes, neatly crafted storyboards, and handouts containing excerpts of works by Kierkegaard, Aristotle, and others. At the core of Mackendrick's lessons lay a deceptively simple goal: to teach aspiring filmmakers how to structure and write the stories they want to tell, while using the devices particular to the medium of film to tell their stories effectively.

In this impressive volume, edited by Paul Cronin, the myriad materials that made Mackendrick's reputation as an instructor are collected for the first time, offering a chance for professionals as well as students to discover a methodology of filmmaking that is challenging yet refreshing in its clarity. Meticulously illustrated and drawing on examples from such classic films as North by Northwest, Citizen Kane, and Touch of Evil, Mackendrick's elegant lessons are sure to provide inspiration for a new generation of filmmakers.

I tried doing a fade. For my first try, I'm pretty happy with it, although I intend to do much better the second time around. I used my good ol' Sally Hansen Chrome Nail Makeup in Platinum Chrome on the tips, Sinful Out of This World on the bottom two-thirds, and Sally Hansen Diamond Strength in Diamonds all over. Depending on the light, the fade looks smoother, but I couldn't get that on film. Also, my nails are finally starting to grow out a little! I finally had them looking all nice, and then I broke three of them and had to cut them back to even them out. I doubled my Biotin for a couple weeks after to give them a boost, and they're finally looking good again!

A fab day pampering with friends today for a hen do. It was great to spend an afternoon like teenagers sharing makeup and tips, watching cheesy films (how young was Tom Cruise in Cocktail?!) and gossiping.
