"Producing and Directing the Short Film and Video, Fifth Edition is a practical, accessible and absolutely necessary resource for the aspiring filmmaker; a candid, behind-the-scenes look at filmmaking written by two legendary film school professors."

- Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, Director, American Horror Story; Me and Earl and the Dying Girl "From cover to cover, Rea and Irving have done a great job of not only updating their seminal book on producing and directing shorts to reflect today's ever-changing production world, but have also reorganized to reflect a more nimble, independent production system. Their use of quotations from a wide range of filmmakers also keeps the text lively and contemporary." - Larry Engel, DGA, WGAE, Filmmaker and Professor, American University "A thoughtful and comprehensive guide to all aspects of making a short film. I wish a practical, nuts-and-bolts guide like this had existed when I was a film student." - Susan Seidelman, Director, Desperately Seeking Susan; Smithereens; Sex in the City; The Electric Company; Stella
