    Documentary storytelling for film and videomakers

    2004 - Focal Press - Burlington, MA

    “It’s possible to tell a great story that fundamentally misrepresents the material that was filmed” "Heston unexpectedly answers, and furthermore agrees to be interviewed. These are reversals because the audience is likely to think that Moore will get either no response or a negative one”
