Reviews

"The USC documentary faculty has required this excellent book in all our documentary courses since its 1st edition. Rabiger has added to his in-depth analysis of the creative and practical implications of documentary production in this latest edition, with new sections on grant writing, technology, and case studies. The book is essential for students and it's also one that every professional documentary filmmaker can constantly refer to and be inspired by."
- Doe Mayer, Professor, Mary Pickford Chair of Film and Television Production, School of Cinematic Arts, University of Southern California

"This book is a time-proof classic, a one-of-a kind roadmap to reaching excellence in documentary making that reads like good, inspiring literature. I have collected and read all of its editions avidly, and can already see that this new edition will serve as an invaluable companion for any documentary filmmaker."

- Juan Francisco Urrusti, Professor, Centro de Capacitacion Cinematografica (Mexico); Documentary Filmmaker, A Long Journey to Guadalupe

"Rabiger's 'two-stage' approach to documentary filmmaking takes the reader on a comprehensive journey from concept development to finished documentary and distribution! His sixth edition of Directing the Documentary is a must-have in any serious documentary filmmaker's library."

- Gene F., Digital Filmmaking Instructor, The Art Institute of CA - Silicon Valley
