• Director’s Reel

    Badham's reel gives a look at some of the funny, exciting, memorable, action-packed, and emotional moments he's created to date.

    Top directors are recommending John's new book, Badham on Directing:

    "Insights from one of the greats. Imagine sitting with Badham and asking every question you had on the craft. It's a treasure trove of invaluable tools and tips." J.J. Abrams

    "I always felt the essence of cinema was the coming together of acting and writing. There are many books on the topics related to directing, but I feel that John Badham's first section on acting is worth its weight in gold. There are many skills involved in making a motion picture, but few so important as working with (and understanding) the actors. That's probably why of all the migrations possible to become a director, few are as successful or plentiful as that of actor to director. This book clearly lays out truthful principles in helping an actor achieve his goals in a way I've never seen before. The other two sections are full of helpful tips as well, but Part 1 is essential for anyone who is serious about directing" Francis Coppola
