About this product
- DescriptionEvery film starts with an idea...logical...experiential... fueled by passion...originated on a napkin...filled with stars. And then there's the rub...a movie must be physical...until a sense of logic is formed. CJ Powers authors his fourth groundbreaking book as an out- growth of his popular CJ's Corner blog. Notes from the Napkin is filled with golden nuggets of truth or Easter eggs of kwledge for the independent filmmaker. Based on CJ's Corner, each chapter is loaded with CJ's practical experiences or insights from processionals that CJ met on set, at festivals, conferences and workshops, or on location. The book is written in three sections based on the viewpoints of a screenwriter, director and producer. Some chapters are written for up and coming filmmakers, and other chapters are aimed at independent professionals. CJ's style is informal and enjoyable to follow, as he unpacks complex issues in his simple, easy to understand fashion. CJ thrives on learning from others, especially those little tips that universities and books don't cover. Many of the insights shared in this book came from professionals during passing off-the-cuff moments. The conversations weren't planned and the professionals hadn't memorized any elevator speeches, but instead genuinely shared from their heart on filmmaking, which CJ is w passing on to his readers.
