(Book). Boyle's best work is often the result of a tight budget and near impossible working conditions; this book is the perfect primer for the impoverished director with lofty dreams. This is a hard look at the filmmaking process as a collaborative experience focused by the relentless energy and enthusiasm of one of his generation's most powerful directors. Whether on the set of the wind soaked Trainspotting , where Ewan McGregor was launched into the spotlight, or in the back streets of Mumbai, in Slumdog Millionaire , or in the depths of outer space in Sunshine , Boyle is unafraid to experiment with every mutant genre. We'll go from the twisted Life Less Ordinary to theutopian nightmare of The Beach and the apocalyptic horror flick 28 Days Later .
