Francis Glebas has put together a really comprehensive and thought-provoking look at the art and craft of film making, specifically directing. His approach, which is to ask a lot of seemingly innocent questions, has much the same effect as the good storytelling he is trying to teach us.it draws us in and makes us think. I can't imagine anyone, in or out of our business, who won't find any number of helpful ideas as they work their way through the filmmaking jungles!!- Roy Disney, Director Emeritus and consultant for The Walt Disney CompanyFrancis Glebas was one of our most talented storyboard artists at Disney, and it was our great fortune to have him on the story team. He has a wealth of experience to share.- Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO, Dreamworks Animation
Francis Glebas, a top Disney storyboard artist, teaches artists a structural approach to clearly and dramatically presenting visual stories. They will learn classic visual storytelling techniques such as conveying meaning with images and directing the viewer's eye. Glebas also teaches how to spot potential problems before they cost time and money, and he offers creative solutions on how to solve them. This title uses the classic story of '1001 Arabian Nights' to show how to storyboard stories that will engage an audience's attention and emotions. It contains 1001 drawings in graphic novel format plus teaching concepts and commentary. All of the storyboarding examples have a real project context rather to engage a very visual audience on their own terms and teaches through demonstration.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

The goal of this book is to help you get your audience "lost in the story" of your movie. It details a lot of professional directing techniques and principles to help aid storytelling. The writing is clear and Francis Glebas even storyboarded a whole short story to serve as an example, in addition to the many examples already provided.
Using storyboards as a primary tool, he goes through the various storytelling techniques used in films , like ways to pace/cut scenes, introducing themes and story structure subtly, directing the audience's eyes, creating characters people can related to, etc. Francis Glebas then breaks down these high level concepts into many smaller easy-to-understand points to focus in depth.
One particular point to note is the version of "One Thousand and One Arabian Nights" Francis Glebas has storyboarded to provided as an example throughout the book. All the techniques he teaches are used in the storyboard for that story. It ends with cliffhangers in every chapter. The story is absorbing even though it's done in sketches. Goes to show that story is still king.
This book is for anyone who wants to direct professional stories. It should be made compulsory reading in film schools. Two enthusiastic thumbs up from me.
For more reading, I would recommend Ideas for the Animated Short, which goes even further in depth with storytelling techniques. Bad stories shouldn't have excuses.

It's easy to read, although or even because of numerous examples provided. Never got lost in it, because the overall example of Scheherazade's story is prominent in every chapter. It feels like Glebas is talking to me, not like to a broad audience. Read "The hero with a thousand faces" before, so reading this book was really a relief because of far easier language. I'm using it for my Bachelor thesis and I'm glad i read it because its input is of incredible value.
The only negative thing that is to mention: The format! It's around A4 in transversal format and for my personal preference, this is way too wide. This might also be influenced by the soft cover that does not give any stability by nature. I think a 21x21cm would have done its job better. Wouldn't have interfered with the transversal storyboard images if layout was done well. Apart of the handling, the book is simply great!
For anyone interested I can also recommend "Into the woods - how stories work and why we tell them" by John Yorke which I am currently reading.
The book begins with a brief outlining for the story of One Thousand and One Arabian Nights, which features a protagonist in a desperate situation who cleverly avoids execution by telling her would-be executioner a story over the course of 1001 nights. Through the use of cliff-hanger endings and careful story structure, the protagonist is not only able to elude death but also sways the heart of the man who would have her killed. This beginning chapter acts as a good metaphor for today's media industry trends and eases the reader into the thought processes of story writing.
It covers all the basic initial steps, from visualising an idea on paper to outlining important industry standards when telling a story. The end of each chapter features a neat summary of the subjects covered in a final “Points to Remember” and “Reference “ section, providing the reader with an effective indexed glossary and allowing the material to remain easily accessible.
Glebas not only points out the individual aspects surrounding the conventions of the film-industry, but also highlights a new point of view with regards to imaging. What is important? How do you use subtexts to highlight separate components in an image? What does the picture tell the viewer?
Glebas covers these different issues by asking the reader questions that inspire the reader and encourages experimentation by altering techniques and even venturing into different genres in the second half of the book.
Finally it ends with practical and effective pieces of advice to keep in mind when going out to pursue a career. Though having been first published by Elsevier Inc. in 2009, it still holds up very well in today's media industry.
In summary, this book remains a very entertaining piece of literature with a large amount of accessible information to improve one's storytelling and the artistic skills. The examples are relatable and the recap at the end of each section helps with the learning process.
Directing the Story is, without a doubt, an absolute necessity and well worth it's price-tag of $24.95 .
