Covering all the steps from concept to completion, Hampe’s guidebook has given students of film around the world the knowledge and confidence to produce their first documentary film. It traces two main approaches—recording behavior and re-creating past events—and shows students how to be successful at each. Now in a second edition, Hampe includes up-to-date information on several topics, such as a discussion on truth, “reality,” and honesty in the filmmaking environment; new advice on how to get started in documentary filmmaking; an expanded section on researching and writing a proposal; and an exhaustive list of resources. In one complete volume, Hampe, who has made more than two hundred documentary films and information videos as director, scriptwriter, or both, offers students the necessary tools to confidently make documentary films and videos.
