The production of a feature film is not the result of the genius of one man, the director, however the auteurs and film critics might argue otherwise. It’s a team effort. Of course the director has a huge input into the picture but so do a lot of other craftsmen and women from the cameraman to the editor and not forgetting the writer of the screenplay which is the heart of the matter. Also, making a film is damned hard work and can be frustrating to the extreme.
Weather, egomaniac actors, crew members and all others involved, can have personal; problems (usually of the love variety), which makes the atmosphere on the set difficult. On the other hand it can be a lot of fun and it must be remembered that those who make or act in films are only human after all and all their foibles and eccentric behaviours should be forgiven.
This novel is about a historical adventure/love story that occurred in the 1840s being made into a film and all the human heartaches and day to day problems encountered. A journey which takes the reader from Hollywood to Fiji, to Australia and back to Hollywood. Any aspiring filmmaker reading this might have second thoughts or might be inspired too!
