Adventures in Filmmaking

Peter Rowe. Pinewood Independent Publishing, $15.95 paper (273p) ISBN 978-0-9918625-0-4
Peter Rowe has been a professional filmmaker for decades. He has traveled the world and filmed in the most extreme conditions. As he spins the story of his career, he takes readers from his youthful experiences with film in the 1960s and a remake of Treasure Island with Jack Palance to his recent extreme weather documentary filmmaking. Rowe also discusses the opportunities afforded filmmakers now—and through it all, he maintains his grace and gentlemanly discretion. For readers familiar with his work, or film enthusiasts in general, this book offers a behind-the-scenes look at the process of filmmaking. As a narrative, however, it suffers from chronological jumps, an unclear structure, and repetition. This might be distracting, but Rowe's diverting anecdotes serve as balance.
