From the Publisher:

"The Ultimate Filmmaking Kit" is one of the most unique filmmaking series on the market today. The filmmakers actually show you, through the production of their own film, "Time and Again," how to make a movie, then support it with the exceptionally, "Producer's Notebook" and the "Production Manual."

Most other filmmaking tutorials are boring videotaped lectures, but "The Ultimate Filmmaking Kit" takes you on set, shares the experiences of the cast and crew, reveals secrets, tips and tricks to independent filmmaking and gives you all the information you need to make your own movie.

From the Author:

I've taught for many years in film schools around the country. One of the biggest problems I'm found is that film schools teach you how to make a $2,000,000 movie. There's nothing wrong with this, other than I don't know of anyone who has that kind of money for their first project. Usually, first-time budgets are no more than a few thousand dollars. So I wanted to prove that it is possible to make a Hollywood-quality movie for next to no money using only local resources. I set out with $2,000 and ventured to middle America and with my small checkbook, proceeded to produce the award-winning movie, "Time and Again." I wasn't alone. I brought with me cameras that documented the entire process so that you could see how we did it. I then compiled all the information into a 300-page book and interactive DVDs and CD-ROMs that walk you through every step of the process. I hope your journey into making movies is as fulfilling as mine has been.
