What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Levison's book helped me create a straightforward and thorough business plan that ultimately raised $2 million for my new project.
-Stu Pollard, Producer/Director, Keep Your Distance

Buying this book is the first step to becoming a successful, independent filmmaker. It helped me launch my company.
-Rick Pamplin, The Pamplin Film Company

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.
-J. David Williams, Distributor, Shiloh and The Omega Code

Need money for a movie? Here's the road map every indie filmmaker needs to find it. It worked for me!
-Paul Sirmons, Director/Producer, The First of May and Forevermore Films
