Pressestimmen

Saying that Jerry Ziesmer probably has delivered the greatest assistant director book ever written doesn't do it justice...this book relates that biz and its lore with color, intimacy, candor and horse sense... Directors Guild Of America Magazine ...one of the best books of the lot... Suffice it to say that Ziesmer's treatment of Apocalypse Now alone is worth the price of the volume. In addition, his discussion of other films that he worked on, including John Huston's Annie, is equally frank, incisive, and entertaining. Ready when You Are is a well-deserved toast to the unsung heroes of moviemaking - the assistant directors. Literature/ Film Quarterly ...the book is at once so personal and so professional that you'll find yourself longing to have "been here when" and worked with Jerry either at DGA or on pictures or both. This is, quite simply, not only the best book ever written about what we so often bandy about as the "craft" of the Assistant Director, it is one of the best books I've read in a long time, period. The Call Sheet If you ever wondered who has the best behind-the-scenes anecdotes in Hollywood, then Ziesmer wins hands down. His book contains some astonishing tales, ranging from life-affirming friendships made under the most trying of circumstances through to the most indulgent star behaviour imaginable. Put it all together and you have an instant five-star classic. Film Review ...Jerry Ziesmer, who has been a top AD in Hollywood for 30 years, has a real gift for writing that shines through in his recollections from the front lines of movie production. Ziesmer's war stories about filmmaking are hilarious, heartbreaking and hair-raising all at once, as he recounts his experiences... American Cinematographer

Synopsis

Now available in paperback! No movie has ever been made, or made well, without the character who toils just outside the spotlight. He arranged for the spotlight, hired the spotlight operator, and even made sure that it was trained correctly on the stars. At the end of the day, there would be no blinking movie screens, no blinking Oscar winners, no finished films, good or bad, without the Assistant Director. Jerry Ziesmer was an assistant director for over thirty years, working on countless films before his retirement in the middle-nineties. He has worked with some of Hollywood's biggest directors, and its biggest stars. In this memoir, he recounts his time in Hollywood including his work on the sets of Apocalypse Now, Close Encounters, and Jerry Maguire. Written with the craft and humor that made Jerry Ziesmer one of the most sought-after assistant directors in Hollywood, this book will be a treasure for students and fans of twentieth-century Hollywood. Cloth edition previously published in 2000.

I'm the author of "Ready When You Are, Mr. Coppola, Mr. Spielberg, Mr. Crowe" and I appreciate Amazon.com giving me this opportunity to comment on my book. The book deals with my journey as a filmmaker from "Apocalypse Now" with Francis Coppola and Marlon Brando, to "Close Encounters" and "1941" with Steven Spielberg and Francois Truffaut, and finally to "Jerry Maguire" with Tom Cruise and Cameron Crowe--who wrote the introduction for my book. The book shares my thirty years of making motion pictures with some of the finest film artists of our time: Sydney Pollack creating "The Way We Were" with Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford; Francis Coppola directing Marlon Brando on "Apocalypse Now", and Bryan DePalma dealing with Al Pacino in "Scarface". The book is written to share my life and experiences in film with you in hopes that it will add to your enjoyment of film and an understanding of those who choose to spend their lifes as filmmakers. Thank you. Jerry Ziesmer

I appreciate Amazon.com giving me the opportunity to comment on my book "Ready When You Are, Mr. Coppola, Mr. Spielberg, Mr. Crowe". The book contains my journey as a filmmaker, husband, and father from "Apocalypse Now" with Francis Coppola and Marlon Brando to "Close Encounters" with Steven Spielberg and Francois Truffaut and finally to "Jerry Maguire" with Tom Cruise and Cameron Crowe who wrote the introduction to my book. I stood beside them as their assistant director in both the sun and the rain.
It's a journey working with the best cinematic artists of our age in some of the greatest motion picture achievements of our times...and then standing at a new grave in a small cemetery in West Los Angeles near the crypts of Marilyn Monroe and Helen Hayes and asking: "Would I do it all again?"
My family and I hope you enjoy the book and come to a greater appreciation of the art of cinema and of those who spend their life's journey putting light and shadows upon the movie screens. Thank you.

Disclaimer--I know Jerry from working with him on the Director's Guild Council, and I have utmost respect for him as a professional filmmaker. But I never knew his talents extended to such cogent, fun-to-read, full-of-insight writing until reading this wonderful book. It combines the best of both worlds--the "inside baseball" stuff that pro's with years of experience will still find new and fresh and helpful to their work AND the "Hollywood" anecdotage that any fan of great movies and moviemakers will read with a chuckle and a tear and a lot of smiles. If you really want to go "Behind the scenes"--save the trip to Universal's tour and get this book instead. You'll learn a lot, and have a great, great time!

This book is what every filmstudent just begs to read. An insightful first hand description of the personalities, the feuds, the friendships, the human factor and the machinery of Hollywood filmmaking. You are provided with an unusually entertaining and informative look into the film business. Jerry Ziesmer's book is "two thumbs up". The warmth and humility of his tone and the opportunity to hear about icons like Spielberg, Coppola or Pollack and their individual working methods is just invaluable. The point of view of the 1st assistent director brings you closest to the decision making and psychological processes on the sets of world class directors. I can only recommend this book to anybody who is interessted in film.
