From the Author:

Nothing beats good advice like a seasoned professional speaking from true and tried practical experience. For this second edition of The Independent Filmmaker's Guide to Writing a Business Plan for Investors, I interviewed a dozen individuals in Part Two of the manuscript to support all the nuts-and-bolts information I conveyed in Part One. These filmmakers and producers are the real deal. If you're an avid moviegoer, you will definitely recognize their movies. Most have produced or directed a slew of blockbuster and award-winning films. Like hardened battlefield warriors, they provide information with authority on a subject they have come to know all too well.

The filmmakers and producers include those behind such notable hits as Jurassic Park, Minority Report, Twister, Monster (with Charlize Theron & Cristina Ricci), Tron and Tron: Legacy, Backdraft, Robin Hood, Glengarry Glen Ross, The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits (90's TV revivals), Witchboard, Night of the Demons, Southland Tales, Moll Flanders, Poltergeist: The Legacy, and Schindler's List, to name a few.

About the Author:

Gabriel Campisi has dealt in the world of finance, investment assets and commercial holdings for more than 20 years. Working simultaneously in motion picture and television production, he has received numerous awards and critical acclaim for his works as an independent writer, director and producer.
