This is a true story. It details the trials and tribulations the author experienced in order to make his first feature film, "Tin Man." Not some Hollywood publicist's account, but the no-holds-barred description of everything that happened - the triumphs and the disasters. The book takes you step-by-step from raising the money through distribution. There is a great emphasis on directing actors, including many very important techniques you have to know. A MUST for any filmmaker, or aspiring filmmaker's, bookshelf! Or anyone curious about how movies are really made.
