Going beyond theory, Eden has put together practical information that can be put to use immediately, from breaking down the script to financing to distribution. Eden is a hands on producer working at the top levels of independent film and an invaluable source for anyone wanting to take the leap and make a film." - Meg LeFauve
Praise for the first edition:
"If only there'd been a book like this when I was starting out. Heck, I'm glad it exists even at this point in my career, so page-packed with useful info is this indispensable tome. Trust me, first-timers, read it from cover to cover and avoid the pitfalls and hang-ups most of us had to learn firsthand. You hold in your hands the perfect marriage between practical and technical advice, and breezy, entertaining anecdotes. What Nicole and Eden have wrought, let no filmmaker put asunder."
-Kevin Smith, writer/director, Clerks, Chasing Amy, and Dogma
"...A clear, insightful and commonsense guide for anyone involved in making a low-budget film that is also a labor of love. Unlike most how-to books which provide clinical step-by-step directions on how to do budgets and schedules, this book explores the nuances of the creative process by walking us through the living, breathing experience of line producing."
- Denise Mann, Vice-chair, Producer's Program, UCLA
