About the Book:

Five keys to creating authentic, distinctive work, whether you are a student, professional or simply love making films on your own.

For Creative Filmmaking from the Inside Out, three professors at the renowned University of Southern California School of Cinema-Television interviewed fifteen outstanding filmmakers, then distilled their insights into the "Five I's" of creativity. Learn how to:

• Uncover your unique creative voice (Introspection)
• Work from real-life observations and experience (Inquiry)
• Draw on your nonconscious wells of creativity (Intuition)
• Strengthen your creative collaborations (Interaction)
• Communicate at the deepest level with your audience (Impact)

This comprehensive approach provides practical exercises that will enrich and transform your work, whether you are looking for a story idea, lighting a set, editing a scene or selecting a music cue.
