Making Movies is the third studio album by the British rock band Dire Straits released on 17 October 1980 by Vertigo Records internationally and by Warner Bros. Records in the United States. The album produced the single "Romeo and Juliet", which reached on the UK Singles Chart. The album reached on album charts in Italy and Norway, in the United States and in the United Kingdom. Making Movies was later certified platinum in the United States and double-platinum in the United Kingdom.

Dire Straits - Making Movies (1980).

And Making Movies is helped by a new wave-tinged pop production, which actually helps Knopfler's jazzy inclinations take hold.

After their second album, Communique was considered by some critics to be too subtle and too close to the band’s stellar self-titled debut album, singer-guitarist Mark Knopfler set out to write a few tunes that exhibited his ambitions as a songwriter. His brother David departed the group, leaving even more room for Knopfler to fill. He responded with his tightest and strongest set of tunes to date

Mark Knopfler: guitar, vocals John Illsley: bass, vocals Pick Withers: drums, vocals. Additional Musicians Roy Bittan: keyboards. Produced by Jimmy Iovine & Mark Knopfler Engineered by Shelly Yakus, assisted by Jeff Hendrickson & Jon Mathias Mastered by Greg Calbi. Artwork by Neil Terk Photography by Brian Griffin.

Making Movies is Dire Straits' third album. It was published the 17th of October of 1980. It was the first album of the band with a keyboardist and also the first one without David Knopfler, who left the band during the recording. Making Movies was one of the top 100 80’s albums of The Rolling Stone magazine. Making Movies Q&A. Producers Jimmy Iovine & Mark Knopfler. Writers Mark Knopfler, Oscar Hammerstein II & Richard Rodgers. Backing Vocals John Illsley & Pick Withers.

Making Movies is Dire Straits's third album and includes several epic numbers that remain among Mark Knopfler's finest work. Tunnel of Love, " "Romeo And Juliet" (covered by the Indigo Girls), and "Solid Rock" all work with the same distinctive galloping rhythm underneath Knopfler's country-blues staccato guitar. The addition of Springsteen's E Street Band pianist Roy Bittan hardly seems less a coincidence considering the Springsteen-esque tone of the material.
