Editorial Reviews

Michael Pastore
Now the filmmaker, Michael Dean, has written a visionary guide to the art and tech of making movies, and the book is as unique and memorable as (his) film. The entire book - from page one through the last chapter of interviews with filmmakers - is imbued with Dean's Do-It-Yourself philosophy. He's funny, he's sincere, he's committed to promoting the radical notion of people making art, and not merely consuming it. For everyone who dares to create works with passion and originality, the integrity of Dean's vision - perfectly captured in this book - will light the way

    This book has it all!

    my god, this is amazing! I can't believe this book hasn't been written before. It's got all this stuff in one place that tried to find in different books, (shooting, sound, editing, writing, lighting, etc.) as well as some stuff on guerrilla promotion that i've NEVER seen anywhere.
