From one of the masters of twentieth-century cinema comes an indispensable and entertaining guide to a visionary new form of film-making.
"Live Cinema is packed with detailed diaried notes as well as other, directorial, observation, as Coppola outlines the concept-to-reality. Worth a skim through, whatever your present industry role." — Screentrade
"Part technical manifesto, part riveting history of live movies and TV, and part freewheeling artistic reflection, Live Cinema compactly presents Coppola's innovative ideas, depth of knowledge, and enduring passions in the live cinema space." — Entertainment Weekly
"... the ideas conjured in this brief, filmy volume will interest any movie nut." — Jonathan Dean, Stage & Screen Books of the Year 2017, The Sunday Times
"Live Cinema and its Techniques is a short, accessible, vividly personal, defiantly oddball and fascinating book." — Viewfinder
"Part manifesto, part instruction manual, Live Cinema is a melange of film theory, professional advice, personal history, television history, work notes and Coppola’s assorted thoughts on live film production." — Times Literary Supplement
