About the Book:

"The craft of scene transitions is the best kept secret in storytelling. Up until now it has been a hidden art form, relegated to the realm of instinct." — Stephen Gaghan, director, from the introduction to Between the Scenes

Even while filmmakers Stephen Gaghan, Ron Howard, and Walter Murch have championed their artistic importance, scene transitions represent something wholly essential but not fully understood. This is an almost secret aspect of filmmaking, capable of evoking powerful emotions in your audience, that you need to understand and employ in your films.

Between the Scenes: What Every Film Director, Writer, and Editor Should Know About Scene Transitions delivers a fresh approach to film directing, screenwriting, and editing. Once you've got your scenes planned out, this book steps in by shifting your focus to how your individual sequences and scenes connect to each other. You'll find new ways to create emotional feelings in your audience. From location choices, to character movement between scenes, to the use of music, scene transitions are where the meat is in your story, and now you'll discover a new pallet of creative possibilities.
