    Deciding on a point of view is one of the hardest tasks a writer faces. Here is expert advice on discovering whose story you are telling, and on point of view as seen by the characters, the audience, the writer, the camera, and more. And you'll hear DiMaggio's own point of view on what it means to be a writer - passion for the process, learning about yourself, scaling the wall of rejection and growing with your characters.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Definitely not writers. Lets get things straight here. When we are talking about a point of view we are not talking about the camera's POV or what the actors are seeing we are talking about which character in the film the author decided to TELL his story. Period., We are 30 min into the book and she is still trying to impress us with her pseudo - analysis of some mediocre films. The best Analysis of Point of View, I ever heard was from one of my professors at Columbia Film School in the 80's Frank Daniel ( AFI USC ) He developed what they call today the sequence approach or the mini movie method.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Madeline DiMaggio again?

    NO


    How could the performance have been better?

    If it was better written - reedited and rehearsed and Re- edited again. Live lectures should not be re-sold to the public they were already sold once. They should be revised and re-edited carefully.


    Any additional comments?

    It would be Fair if we could read or listen the first chapter of the book before we buy it,
