Film directing is both an art and science. Author Tom Marcoux shows how you can become savvy with working with all kinds of people and then have the space to create an excellent feature film, short film or video for YouTube. This book reveals "21 Darkest Secrets" and then gives you the "countermeasures" so you're prepared to handle the tough situations that come up every day on a film set. And Marcoux reveals secrets so you effectively lead the various phases of film/video production: developing the screenplay, preproduction, production, and postproduction. He even provides some insights to fundraising, marketing and distribution. This is a must-read for novice and veteran filmmakers. From Dr. JoAnn Dahlkoetter

Looking back on my experiences as a film maker there are times I really could have used this book. Easy to read this book gives you a list of "Darkest Secrets" or very helpful tips and lessons for different situations you may (or will) encounter in your film career. One that really hit home was "Darkest Secret #4: People Will Get Angry. Deal With It." This section shows how people get upset on the set and how to deal with it. For any director, that's one of the hardest lessons to learn and anger on the set is a common situation. Definitely worth it!
