9781592573905: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Independent Filmmaking

Designed for people who want to tell a story their way, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Independent Filmmaking explains everything a budding auteur needs to know— from literary development and financial and organizational pre-production to principal photography production, post-production assembly, exhibition and distribution, and more.

· The advent of desktop editing and a wide range of consumer cameras enable the average person to create a "film studio" at home

· A great "textbook" for novice filmmakers, whether film students or on-their- own auteurs

· The proliferation of film festivals around the world, many of which encourage submissions from "amateur" filmmakers, shows there are countless filmmakers who aren’t learning the ropes in school

· Author has terrific credentials and has a feature-length script in development in Hollywood
