Pressestimmen

"While there are many books about the technical basics of documentary film production, none of them integrate so thoroughly the artistic intention at the heart of great direction with the means of realization in pre-production, the field and the editing room...Great directing is equally a matter of heart and soul as much as technical knowledge. This idea is prevalent throughout Rabiger's book." - Ray Zone, International Documentary Magazine "What makes this book so valuable is that the author consistently searches for the philosophical underpinnings of his art and never gets lost in the technical processes of filmmaking." - Jonathan Luskin, Flying Moose Pictures, San Francisco "The book's greatest strength is the emphasis on documentary filmmaking as a creative, storytelling process...It supplies more in the way of an ethical foundation for the young filmmaker than any other title on the market." - Phil Hopper, Director, Theatre and Media Arts Program, Marymount College of Fordham University "Intelligent and artfully written, Directing the Documentary should enjoy a place of prominence in the library of every documentary videomaker." - Videomaker magazine "...what really makes this book so valuable is that the author is just so inspiring. Rabiger writes with such enthusiasm that even the most nervous would-be documentary maker is encouraged. But this is not the extent of his audience as this text is also highly relevant and impassioning to the seasoned pro...This text is inspirational, accessible, filled with useful filmic references and snippets of advice...This updated 4th edition really is a must for anyone with an interest in documentary filmmaking." - POV2 Journal "Skim and scan this one? Nope! Read it cover to cover? Absolutely! Not since I read Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code has a book been the cause of forcing me to rethink things as much as this one. For those either making documentaries or thinking about it, this is the book to get." - Steve Douglas, underwater videographer and writer for kenstone.net "I read Michael Rabiger's Directing the Documentary which contains a list of not-to-miss American documentaries and Thin Blue Line is among them, as well as other films that depict wrongful incarcerations, such as Murder on a Sunday Morning."--PBS.com's blog "Doc Soup"

Format: Taschenbuch
Dieses Buch wurde von einem reich erfahrenen Mann des Genres geschrieben.
Es brilliert in allen Kategorien des Fachs "Dokumentarfilm". Es ist in zwei Teile (einen für Beginner und einen für Fortgeschrittene) unterteilt, welche mit gut gesetzten Querverweisen mit einander vernetzt sind. Das Buch hat das Zeug, aus einem engagierten Laien sowie aus einem bereits erfahrendem Filmer einen waschechten Dokumentarfilmregisseur zu machen. Dafür muss vorausgesetzt sein, dass der Leser das Buch auch nutzt. Zu Nutzen gibt es eine gefühlt unendliche Anzahl an Möglichkeiten: 1)Das per Code und Internet erhältliche Zusatzmaterial (die reinste Hilfmaschine voller praktischer Dokumente und einiger interessanter Studentenfilme), 2)die vielen, gut eingeordneten Beispiele, 3)detailreiche technische Beschreibungen, 4) Tips and Tricks von Post- über Preproduktion zur Filmindustrie, 5) die etwas und äußerst viel Zeit in Anspruch nehmenden Anwendungsaufforderungen, 6) die vielen zitierten und weiterführenden Quellen, 7) Ausführungen zur Rollenverteilung im Produktionsprozess, etc. Der Leser wird als Mensch in Verstand und Herz gefordert, sein eigenes komplexes Wesen, seine filmische Methodik, seine Auffassung aktueller Ereignisse zu analysieren. Möchte man tatsächlich ins Dokumentargeschäft einsteigen, macht dieses Buch einfach nur Spaß.
Das Buch ist fabelhaft untergliedert, interessant und ansprechend geschrieben sowie zugleich fordernd. Es handelt sich um eine rundumschlagende Anleitung mit festem Biss und bunter Farbe - nicht um eine leichte Gute-Nacht-Lektüre zum Thema "Dokumentarfilm".

Das Buch bietet auch fabelhafte Ideen für Regisseure fiktionaler Themen.

HASH(0x9459c204) von 5 Sternen "The First Step to The Academy Awards!" Directing The Documentary: A Critical Review. 13. Dezember 2009
Von Andre Lawrence - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Focal Press puts out a number of books related to fine- and digital art, Feature, Independent and Documentary films as well as Animation Techniques. However, one of their best titles that touch upon all of the above-mentioned categories is a recently released book called Directing The Documentary, The Fifth Edition by Michael Rabiger.

There are many "how to" books, Rabiger reminds us, but there are philosophical and structural differences in making a Feature (fictitious) film and a Documentary film.

For instance, the Feature is a work that is constantly striving to be consistent with a pre-existent script. And, the goal of the director, crew and actors is to be faithful to the written word. A Documentary, on the other hand, starts off with a question and the director, crew and guests attempt to capture future, undetermined events in a relentless pursuit of The Truth. The Documentary, therefore, is essentially the process by which an answer is obtained.

These distinctions are important because it influences how the film would be made, the costs incurred, the manner in which footage is used, types of video, audio and perhaps, digital editing and processing time. There's also issues dealing with "rights" that cannot be known until footage is shot.

The book, Directing The Documentary, lays out in the most minutest of detail the basics and some advanced theories on creating a marketable documentary feature. The text is broken down into two (2) "books." One, "The Fundamentals" is an overview of creating a documentary by examining theories behind pursuing the project, the use of audio and video tools, working with cast and crew, budgetary issues, post-production tools and festivals. The other, Book 2, "Advanced Theories," is just that, an in depth look at aesthetics, production issues (pre and post), the script, narration, music and editing structural problems as well as some thoughts about starting a career as a documentary filmmaker.

This is one of the most valuable books on the subject of filmmaking and documentary filmmaking in particular that anyone who is remotely interested would want to own.

It is my sincerest pleasure to recommend this book without any hesitation.

HASH(0x9459cec4) von 5 Sternen Keep it within arm's reach! 8. Mai 2010
Von Claire Jordan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I've owned the third edition of "Directing the Documentary" for years, so I was elated to receive the new edition. I taught video editing at a major university for many years and received a lot of production books to review. After reading through them once, most of them went on the bookshelf perhaps to be cracked open now and again as a reference book. But from the time I first opened it, "Directing the Documentary" has been on my desk with the two or three other production "bibles" I can't live without.

I sometimes take it with me to lunch and flip through it for inspiration, of which it contains plenty. Let me stress that this is not a technical manual. Yes, it does include a great deal of "nuts & bolts" information, but it's strength lies in the fundamental concept upon which Mr. Rabiger builds the book: making documentaries is an artform. Yes, it can be very technical and there's a lot to know and understand, but that technical knowledge is a foundation upon which you can, and should, create art. It's that core, of which Mr. Rabiger never loses sight, that makes "Directing the Documentary" so very different from most production books.

I have recommended this book to complete novices (I just recommended it the other day to a friend who is going to Mongolia for a year and wants to take a video camera to document her experiences) and to people who already have some experience in documentary production. Every single person to whom I've recommended this book, who has purchased it, has thanked me for turning them onto it.

Some books are essential. "Directing the Documentary" is definitely at the top of that category.

HASH(0x9961e03c) von 5 Sternen An exhaustive, must-have tool for any film buff 12. Dezember 2009
Von Marblehead - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
To give a full and detailed review of this book would be an impossible task. It is one of the most detailed books dedicated to the process of a craft that I have ever seen. For those people who have a great idea in their minds and are convinced that their documentary vision will just have to be made, you HAVE to read this book first.
I have a minor in film studies, and this book covers more details than all of the text books I've ever read about film making. Everything from the cameras, to the sound, to the locations, to the language. And that's just the beginning. This is one of those books that, as a film maker, I could see carrying around and using on a daily basis to the point where it become so dog-eared and overused that you'd have to buy another one because of its importance. Reading this book has made me more interested in the process of film making, not just as an art, but as a quest! You really begin to appreciate all of those great documentaries you've seen over the years once you really delve into what makes them successful in the first place.
Another great thing about this book is that author Michael Rabinger makes it a very readable experience. While most text books, and that's what this is for the most part, ramble on and on in a very stale style, Rabinger doesn't talk down to you or accommodate his readers. He suspects that the reader knows something about film already, and guides you along necessary paths in order to understand the realities of documentary film making.
I would unabashedly recommend this book to anyone who considers themselves a film buff, whether you're a film maker or not. EVERY possible angle is covered here, and it's very accessible as well.

HASH(0x9459cf3c) von 5 Sternen Not as scary as it sounds. 17. Dezember 2009
Von mja.mobi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I was scared to tackle this book, as I was sure I would be overwhelmed with too much info. I am far from directing anything but mini films at this point. But we are living in a tube-nation, and this is the perfect place to start to make sure you go in the right direction.

To be honest, to me, this is more of a reference tool than a book I could ever read page by page. I have a lot of questions and notes in my head, and found this to be an easy to navigate guide to getting answers. With answers came more questions, and before you know it, I have post-its, tabs and notes all over the place.

This is so much more than a book on one subject of a Documentary. It covers every step that is involved. From preparation to expenses, restrictions, deductions... was not expecting this plethora of coverage.

Most importantly, the book is inspiring. You feel like your thoughts that were out of reach are right in front of you. You get a heavy dose of reality with things you never considered would be part of this journey, and soon you will be creating a film crew and working with people who believe in your vision. There is so much involved with dealing with legal aspects, certifications, permits, royalty and copyright issues. Plenty of focus on audio and musical elements as well.

So, don't be intimidated by the product. Embrace the book as an open door. I look forward to seeing what comes from this for me... and you!

HASH(0x9961e048) von 5 Sternen Excellent "How To" book for school teachers and students! 8. Dezember 2009
Von TR - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I am in college now preparing to become a High School teacher in English. One of the new State requirements is to prepare media literate students who are prepared for the 21st century onslaught of media production as well as the discriminating consumer of mass media. I chose this book as a guide in a college assignment where groups of students create certain types of media. This book was the perfect choice to aid in media production. The author begins with the basics and elaborates on more and more complex material as the book progresses.
Michael Rabiger, the author, begins with the history of the genre. Documentaries are not "real" life autobiographies but works of fiction with built in biases as well. How's that for honesty! The book gets a little bit political (big supporter of Michael Moore), so be prepared, but it doesn't take away from the mass of information. Rabiger discusses creativity too. It's all here. The production side is the meat and potatoes of this book, and Rabiger's deep experience is what makes this book so privileged. There is nothing that isn't discussed from how to test equipment, which equipment is road ready and which not, and he, of course, elaborates on the proper use of the lights, sound, and video equipment.
The all important conventions and rules necessary to make sure the production is pleasing to view and hear is all here too such as the flow of movement on the screen and the correct camera placement for line of sight viewing.
It doesn't end there. Rabiger discusses film schools too, what to expect from them etc. Students will love that aspect.
The level of experience that the author has gives the reader confidence. The ease of reading due to the clarity and logic of the text gives the reader hope. After reading and using segments, the factuality of the text gives the reader self-esteem because of the assurance of success.
If your a budding director and want to create your own documentary (especially if you don't even have the equipment yet), run to buy this book. If you have dabbled in media creation but just not the documentary, then, you too should well consider buying this book. You will have a finished product in no time. This book is light theory, only where it counts, for it is mostly a hands on practical book on creating and "Directing the Documentary"! And, as I stated earlier, it is a great book for us lay people too, those of us who dabble in the art out of neccessity for school (or any organizational) projects.
Let me end by noting that the equipment covered in this text ranges in dates to the most recent. I am definatly not an expert on this, but it is clear that one area in which the editions have changed is the constant updating of equipment in a rapidly changing field.
I hope this helps guide your choice.
Michael
