Editorial Reviews

Booknews
From his experience as the producer of some 80 films in the US and Germany, Clev<'e> (production, Filmakademie Baden-Wurttenberg) shares the standards and practices of the business of completed screenplay production. Provides updated (since the 1994 edition) information on contracts, budgets, markets, and resources. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From the Publisher
"This book has just about everything an aspiring production manager will need to know about their role in the production process...A great book for anyone getting into behind the scenes filmmaking." - Black Filmmaker

"Film production management is quite a different affair in many respects to that of live shows; there is often more time available to spend planning, but equally there are often more people and more problems to manage. As such there is a lot more paperwork, and managing this efficiently is a key theme throughout this book.

Cleve is no novice at this type of work either, with over 80 films and various awards to his name you do get the feeling you are being guided by an experience hand." - Lighting & Sound, April 2007
