Directing Humans

As a technically and visually minded creator, this book has been unbelievably insightful into the heart, soul, and humanity of filmmaking. While this is just a first step in learning how to direct actors, after this book I feel confident enough to start making mistakes.

A guide in the room

This is my favourite book on filmmaking. Very deep yet down-to earth insight in the relationship between the script, the director and the actor. It's a personal guide you'll want with you in the room somewhere during your last drafts, the casting and rehearsals and before you enter the set. I have been appreciating this book so much that, way back, I OCR-ed a scan of the paper book and had it read out aloud to me by a synthesized speech app. A lot of hassle for a crappy result, but still worth the while as I want to keep reconnecting with the material in this book again and again. You can can imagine how happy I was when I learned there was an official audiobook coming out, read by Judith Weston herself. It's a great addition.
