About the Author:

Adam Leipzig is the CEO of Entertainment Media Partners, which provides informed guidance for independent media companies, financiers, and producers, and is the publisher of Cultural Weekly (www.culturalweekly.com). Adam teaches at Chapman University's Dodge College of Film and Media Arts, in the Executive Education program of UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business, and in UCLA's Professional Producing Program. He has overseen more than 25 movies as producer, executive, or distributor, including March of the Penguins; Dead Poets Society; Titus; Honey, I Shrunk the Kids; Amreeka; and The Story of the Weeping Camel. Adam served as president of National Geographic Films and as senior vice president at Walt Disney Studios, and in each of those positions was responsible for the movie industry's most profitable film of the year. He is the author of Inside Track for Independent Filmmakers: Get Your Movie Made, Get Your Movie Seen, a how-to manual with tips for solving the problems most faced by emerging and independent filmmakers. Adam worked his way through college with a number of summer jobs, including a stint as a garbage collector for the City of Los Angeles. He says it prepared him well for his work in Hollywood. Adam loves to hear from his readers; contact him at Adam@AdamLeipzig.com.After completing his MFA at the USC School of Cinematic Arts, Barry worked on some of the most profitable, award-winning projects of the last 20 years. In the roles of animation executive, producer, and collaborator with Sony Pictures, Warner Brothers, Nickelodeon, and Turner Pictures, he has achieved an unparalleled record of success. Barry was instrumental in the creation of two animation studios, leading the teams that created the animated characters for the Stuart Little and Spider-Man franchises, plus characters for 20 additional films, such as Open Season and Academy Award nominee Surf's Up. He is credited on 62 films and shorts, two of which have won Academy Awards and eight additional nominations. Barry is also an Emmy Award winner. Barry began his Hollywood career as a tour guide at Universal Studios. He still has fond memories of his daily encounters with mechanical sharks and flash floods.

Michael Goldman is a veteran entertainment-industry journalist and author, who has penned seven books, including his work coauthoring Filmmaking in Action. Among these are the New York Times bestseller John Wayne: The Genuine Article; Clint Eastwood: Master Filmmaker at Work, an authorized look at the legendary director's filmmaking techniques; and Reality Ends Here: 80 Years of USC Cinematic Arts, the definitive history of the world's oldest and most famous film school. He is a frequent contributor to American Cinematographer magazine and writes for a host of industry publications, newsletters, and websites, including CineMontage, SMPTE Newswatch, and Post magazine. Michael served for many years as senior editor of the famed industry trade journal Millimeter and, before that, as an editor at Daily Variety.
