Making the Magic Happen will fast track your way to becoming a working Film and TV director.

Written by an accomplished and award winning film director who also teaches his craft, Peter D. Marshall shows you why directing a movie is actually simpler than you think. The trick? Learn the "craft" before pursuing the "art." His book Making the Magic Happen demystifies the process of directing by demonstrating what you must first learn about the "craft" of filmmaking. Only then can you apply your logistical and creative skills to the "art" of filmmaking.
