Letters to aspiring directors, producers, screenwriters, and other creatives from one of the world’s leading teachers of film. Suber emphasizes that what is required of a professional in the world of film is not just technique, but an understanding and ability to deal with the realities of how films get made.
If anyone can be called the “Yoda” of filming, it’s Howard Suber. For 46 years, Howard Suber has taught generations of screenwriters, directors, producers, and film scholars at UCLA’s celebrated film school, and his former students are today creating films and television programs and teaching film studies throughout the world.
He created and for many years chaired UCLA’s current Film and Television Producers Program, which is focused on the realities of the modern film and television industries.
