Abstract:

"Because directors have a comprehensive view of the filmmaking industry, they have often been interviewed for their insights on movie making. Until Hollywood in Wide Angle, however, their responses have never been so revealing." "More than thirty film directors were interviewed by Jack Rothman, a social scientist who guaranteed their responses would remain anonymous. Rothman analyzes the uncensored comments from these ideal informants to give readers an inside look into the process of filmmaking, as well as an understanding of the wider sociological forces that both limit and facilitate such endeavors. The result is an intimate and candid portrait of work within the film industry, both on and off the set." "Hollywood in Wide Angle will be useful not only to students but also to new and aspiring directors and other industry professionals. Indeed, this book will intrigue anyone truly interested in both movies and the complex industry behind them."--Jacket.
