From the Author:

Balancing the inevitable tug between art and commerce is your job, but without film commerce, your art will never come into existence, much less reach an audience. The advice here reflects custom and practice in the entertainment industry here [in the Los Angeles area]. The emphasis is on the deals that need to be made. We give you an idea of the nature of various deals, point out the critical issues, and provide parameters that deals typically fall within and how they are documented. We hope this book can raise the level of sophistication of independent producers and result in more and better independent films being financed, produced, and distributed.
