Reviews - What do customers think about The Working Director: How to Arrive, Survive and Thrive in the Director's Chair?

The BEST book on Film Directing. Period.  Jun 23, 2008
I have read literally dozens of books on Film Directing and this is the best book I have EVER read on directing the film. Period. It is a fast, easy read, and 100% employable - meaning every page has info you will use on the set.

I am an actor who had a directing gig fall in my lap, and will be in Australia at the end of the year DIRECTING a circus movie! No formal film school, (beyond my degree in acting), so I've been interviewing everyone I know who has directed films, and reading every book I can find on 'Directing The Film', directors on directing, Dmytryk "On Screen Directing", "The 5 C's of Cinematography"... and MANY others. Hands down, this is the most useful and practical. ...Followed by The 5 C's.

Thank you Charles Wilkinson. It is my fervent wish to meet and work with you someday.

I want to thank author and tell to anybody who is looking for highly professional and expirienced book about shooting process that this book is a gift. You will not find all answers on questions about filmmaking, but you will understand a whole structure of this process. Easy reading. Truth. Expirienced author. 5 stars.
I am a filmmaker in LA and have made three short films and currently find myself a little stumped about the next course of action that I should take.
I have to say however that while I have gone through many of the steps that are outlined in your book I found so much new stuff that I feel re-inspired to get cracking and get something made.
I spent years as an actor reading these types of books and it was only recently that I found out about your book for directors.
Thanks man, you have written a great book for those of us trying to find our way in this endeavour and I hope to cross paths with you one day on the set!!!

Your book "THE WORKING DIRECTOR" Is my Bible of inspiration for it has enhanced my knowledge of the business and it has helped me to continue to write as I direct my short films. I would like to thank you for allowing me the opportunity to visit your website. Thank You

Review by Dave Hurd, P3 Update Magazine  Sep 8, 2006
Charles Wilkinson pulls no punches, and the result is powerful. It's like he took you under his wing and explained the dos and don'ts of directing, not the film school stuff, but the tricks of the trade that you need to survive in the real world. I learned that there are many rules on a set, and how you interact with those on the food chain above you, and below you, can make or break your career. If you plan to be a director, "The Working Director" is full of good stuff that you need to know.
