Learn to Speak Film: A Guide to Creating, Promoting, and Screening Your Movies

Michael Glassbourg, illus. by Jeff Kulak. Owlkids (PGW, dist.), $22.95 (96p) ISBN 978-1-926973-85-2
“Film brings a world that does not exist to life,” writes Glassbourg, a producer and college-level film/TV production instructor, in this fourth and final book in the Learn to Speak series (following entries on music, dance, and fashion). In six chapters, capably illustrated once again by Kulak’s sharp, vaguely retro images, Glassbourg explores the connections between photography and filmmaking, lighting, screenplays, and who’s who on a film crew, along with tips on shooting, postproduction, and distribution. Throughout, sidebars offer comments from people in the industry (“If we think of a film as a building, the script is a foundation,” says a scriptwriter/director), as well as relevant films for readers to track down. A comprehensible and encouraging intro to filmmaking, from inspiration through production. Ages 9–13. (Aug.)
