Audience: Independent filmmakers, producers.
If Louise Levison's Filmmakers & Financing were only about business plans, it would be worth more than its cover price. In addition, Levison gives sage, savvy, and clear introductions to every important aspect of film business-marketing, distribution, varieties of investors, financing options-it's all here, including a sample business plan. 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
A must-have educational and reference tool to help you conquer current industry practices regarding finance, production and distribution. Louise has consistently delivered a plethora of information that is easy for a beginning filmmaker to understand, while at the same time very useful to the entertainment veteran. No filmmaker's library would be complete without it.
