My short time with him as a student in that curriculum prepared me as almost no other schooling has. The book not only features a condensation of his best advice but also a series of mind excercises one must bring to the craft in order to keep up. All of this is in addition to the typical textbook description of the directing environment, complete with extensive descriptions of who's who in the studio and in the control room.
Although the book concentrates mostly on the multi-camera environment, Cury applies the right mix of film style production instruction as well.
Ivan Cury's sections about budgeting and dealing with crews are invaluable and the step by step guides leave no questions unanswered.
Cury lays out the ropes and the laws of the land in easy to digest and logical bites, and instead of centering chiefly on the tools, his course concentrates on the creative palette and the canvas in the mind of the director, although this latest edition brings even the seasoned journeyman an update on the latest trends in digital video.
Cury makes sure that the inexperienced beginner knows what to expect in the production setting.
Outside of attending one of Cury's courses in person I give this book my highest recommendation.
