What people say:

"Film School is a result of life experiences, teaching, and a true passion for cinema. It is not an academic dissertation or a technical treatise. Rather, through Richard Pepperman's gifted teaching style, he presents the art of filmmaking as journey. Pepperman shows that a film is the possibility of a true encounter, offering insights equally valuable to the movie buff, aspiring filmmaker, and professional in the field. Finally, filmmaking can be considered 'par coer'!" — Simonetta d'Italia-Wiener, Professor, St. Francis College

"Richard Pepperman's latest book on movies, and moviemaking, provides an abundance of insights. Film School is a great book for anyone interested in movies, most especially for those who can't study in a traditional film school program. Here is a wonderful reminder of the great films to be watched, and slowly re-watched, for all the grand little things. Film School is a great resource for students of cinema, and all those who love movies!" — Robert Hyams, Post-Production Supervisor, LaserPacific Media Corporation
