Experienced freelance TV and theatre director turned University Lecturer, Nick Bamford offers a straightforward, no-nonsense survival guide to directing TV and video.

Aimed at students, new entrants to TV or corporate film-making or those moving up into their first directing jobs, it covers everything from pre-production to the final edit and is drawn from 25 years' experience producing and directing a huge range of TV programming from drama, through features, documentary, observational documentary and factual entertainment to reality television and corporate work.

Entirely practical and 'hands-on' - this is an on-the-job reference for experienced advice on all aspects of factual and fiction programme making. Based on the author's extensive and ongoing industry experience this book reflects the type of work and level that most new directors today will be working at.
