Summary Michael Rabiger's Directing the Documentary is the established guidebook to the process of making a documentary work for the screen. This includes the real problems of researching and focusing a documentary film or video idea, developing a crew, directing the crew and participants, and maintaining control during shooting. Rabiger also leads the reader through the complex evolutionary process of postproduction, where the film's true characteristics can really begin to emerge and assert themselves
