9780847828906: Scenes from the City: Filmmaking in New York

From the cinema verité of the sixties to softer fare like Splash, New York has provided some of the most iconic moments on film. Beginning with a survey of such classics as Breakfast at Tiffany's, Scenes from the City captures how the changing face of New York, as well as the founding of the MOFTB, have contributed to a particular school of film characterized most emphatically in the street-style work of directors as diverse as Martin Scorsese and Spike Lee. With over 200 stills and contributions from noted New York film personalities such as Sidney Lumet and Nora Ephron, the book also includes rare, unpublished, behind-the-scenes shots and stories from the quintessential New York filmmaker himself—Woody Allen. With a special section on the landmark TV series, commercials and music videos filmed in New York, Scenes from the City is an affectionate and vivacious ovation for this captivating "character" that rarely receives billing but always steals the show.

Review :

“By the early 1970s, New York’s reign as a television and filmmaking capital seemed to be over. What a difference a few decades make. In Scenes From the City, James Sanders masterfully revises and expands his original book...In his chronological, lavishly illustrated backstage tour, Mr. Sanders, an architect and filmmaker himself, details how assiduously Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and his predecessors wooed Hollywood...and reaped... an intangible reward: the 'power to convert the daily reality of the city into a magical transcendent realm.'" The New York Times

“...this book captures stories and images of one of the world’s most filmed and most cinematic cities – New York. The locale is presented in all its iconic glory through landmark location films, beginning from the forties to the present. Rare and unusual photographs are accompanied by the commentary of actors, directors and other filmmakers. This film history is a great reminder of the force of landscape as a character in the history of cinema.” –Malibu Times

"From the cinema verite of the 1960s to softer fare, New York has provided some of film's most famous moments. 'Scenes' captures the current work of directors as diverse as Martin Scorcese and Spike Lee." -Publishers Weekly
