Synopsis

Film technicians are often the forgotten individuals in film history. The Ultimate Directory of Film Technicians lists those who worked behind the cameras from the beginning of the film industry to the present, a time span of nearly one hundred years. Film technicians encompass a range of positions that evolved quickly over the short history of film: executives, producers, directors, screen writers, cinematographers, set and costume designers, composers, editors and more. This cavalry of film professionals includes famous individuals like Cecil B. Demille, Samuel Goldwyn, Alfred Hitchcock, and D.W. Griffith, but also many more who helped produce films but remain relatively anonymous. Without these individuals as well, film as a medium would never have been as popular or sophisticated as it is today. This book includes pertinent information about thousands of film technicians: their birth and death dates as well as information concerning their professional film careers. The Ultimate Directory of Film Technicians gives credit, in the most literal and metaphoric sense, to the great film-makers, of the past and present.
