Francis Ford Coppola
Francis Ford Coppola is the Academy-Awardwinning director of The Godfather, Apocalypse Now, and numerous other films. His forthcoming book, Live Cinema and Its Techniques, is an indispensable and entertaining guide to a visionary new form of moviemaking that Coppola believes will become a powerful medium within the larger film industry. As digital moviemaking, like live sports, can now be performed by one director or by a collaborative team working across the internet, it is only a matter of time before cinema auteurs will create live movies of the highest creative quality that will be sent instantly via satellite to be viewed in faraway theaters. Whether recounting his own boyhood obsession with film, tracing the origins of live cinema through a history of early film and live 1950s television shows, or presenting state-of-the-art techniques on everything from rehearsals to equipment, Coppola demonstrates that the spontaneity of this genre of live cinema will transport filmmaking into a new era of creativity previously unimaginable.
