Documentary students and fans revel in stories about filmmakers conquering extraordinary challenges trying to bring their work to the screen. This book brings vividly to life the sometimes humorous, sometimes excruciating-and always inspiring-stories behind the making of some of the greatest documentaries of our time. All of the filmmakers and films profiled are Oscar-nominated or Oscar-winning. Documentary Case Studies walks readers through the fixes and missteps that today's documentary leaders worked through at all stages to create their masterworks-from development, fundraising and pre-production, through production and then post. There are plenty of "how to?? documentary filmmaking books in circulation, but this book will instead deploy a personal, intimate, and candid approach to unlocking the secrets of the craft and the business by meeting filmmakers who tackle production challenges in the most resourceful and unconventional ways.

Orson Welles produzierte 1938 nach diesem SF-Klassiker das berühmteste Hörspiel aller Zeiten: obwohl als Hörspiel angekündigt, brach Panik aus, die Menschen verließen fluchtartig die Städte, weinten, beteten und glaubten an das Ende der Welt.

Agricultural and Food Controversies

The world is more interested in issues surrounding agricultural and food issues than ever before. Are pesticides safe? Should we choose locally grown food? Why do some people embrace new agricultural technologies while others steadfastly defend traditional farming methods? In the debates about organic food, genetically modified organisms, and farm animal welfare, it's not always clear what the scientific studies are actually telling us. To understand these controversies and more, the authors of Agricultural and Food Controversies: What Everyone Needs to Know begin by encouraging readers to develop an understanding of how two well-educated people can form radically different opinions about food. Sometimes the disputes are scientific in nature, and sometimes they arise from conflicting ethical views. This book confronts the most controversial issues in agriculture by first explaining the principles of each side of the debate, guiding readers through the scientific literature so that they can form their own educated opinions. Questions asked: - Are organic foods truly better for your health? - Are chemical fertilizers sustainable, or are we producing cheap food at the expense of future generations? - What foods should we eat to have a smaller carbon footprint? - Does buying local food stimulate the local economy? - Why are so many farm animals raised indoors? - Should antibiotics be given to livestock? - Is genetically-modified food the key to global food security, and does it give corporations too much market power? - Is the prevalence of corn throughout the food system the result of farm subsidies? Providing a combination of research and popular opinions on both sides of the issue, Agricultural and Food Controversies: What Everyone Needs to Know allows readers to decide for themselves what they personally value and believe to be important when it comes to their food.
