Dakota Epic is a rousing, humorous look behind the scenes of movie making. The illustrations were created by Jim Hatzell, a reenactor and artist, who drew a wide variety of sketches while on the set. Bill and Jim have worked together to develop a unique view of life on the Dances With Wolves film set. If you have ever wondered what the background people were doing and thinking during and between filming, then this is the book for you. You will never view the people in a film's background quite the same after reading this book.

Bill Markley sheds light on many behind the scenes action that takes place in the filming of a major movie. His highly descriptive account of his days as a reenactor makes one feel as if one were actually on set. He also explains some of the tricks that were used to film the scenes, making them look highly authentic. He also explains a lot of the boredom from long hours on the set and what cast and crew do to entertain themselves while waiting for their call. Markley shares what it was like to meet and work with a famous actor, something most everyone dreams of but never gets the opportunity. The odds of a 'Dakota' boy being cast in a Hollywood epic were one in a million, so dream your dream with 'Dakota Epic!'Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
