Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A veritable bible, valuable for both the short and feature filmmaker. It's as good as a year in most film schools." - Jon Davison, producer: Airplane, Robocop, and Starship Troopers

"A thoughtful and comprehensive guide to all aspects of making a short film. I wish a practical, nuts-and-bolts guide like this had existed when I was a film student." - Susan Seidelman, director, Desperately Seeking Susan, Smithereens, Sex in the City, The Electric Company, and Stella

"Without question, the definitive book on film production. A long-awaited, necessary map to the young filmmaker in his journey through the minefields of movie making. I would keep it next to the viewfinder." - Michael Pressman, film director, producer, The Practice, Chicago Hope, Picket Fences, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II

"This book should be considered the ‘bible’ for short film production."- Janaki Cedanna, Faculty & Film Studio Manager, Herberger Institute for Design and The Arts, Arizona State University
