About the Book:

Roger Ebert describes Vincent Ward as a "true visionary." Here, the sources of Ward's filmmaking vision are revealed, offering a unique view of the creative process in film.

Making the Transformational Moment in Film by film scholar Dan Fleming is a bold exploration that gets under the skin of the filmmaking process and shows how audiences can be moved through deeply transformational uses of the medium.

You'll learn how the raw materials of filmmaking are brought together so that the transformation happens. Key moments in the films from Vincent Ward) and others are used as examples, examining how the moment is staged, how visual composition is used, how narrative is structured, how colour, light, and music are brought together, and how to get inside characters that viewers really care about.

What people say:

"There is something on every page of this book to make film lovers jump for joy. Brilliantly evoking the essence of Arthur Koestler's chance crossing of two unlikes, [this book] packs film techniques and film theory into one seminal mashup." — Barnet Bain, producer: What Dreams May Come

"Fleming does what few do successfully; he masterfully blends theory with practical instruction. This is what we need: [a book that will] actually help filmmakers think in new ways and make BETTER FILMS." — Chad Gervich, writer/producer, author: Small Screen, Big Picture
