This book is a "must have" for any filmmaker's bookshelf." —Morrie Warshawski, Consultant, and author of Shaking the Money Tree: How to Get Grants and Donations for Film and Video-2nd Edition

No filmmaker's library would be complete without it. -J. David Williams, Distributor, Shiloh and The Omega Code
