Synopsis:

The Portable Film School is a private tutorial from an instructor at one of the nation's most prestigious film schools. D.B. Gilles explains the fundamental skills and techniques of screenwriting and making a short film arming you with the two calling cards you'll need to break into Hollywood – without having spent the tuition or a minute in a classroom.

From the Back Cover:

"Just when you think there aren't anymore books to write about filmmaking, here comes D.B. Gilles' The Portable Film School: a wonderful on-paper process that shows you how to write screenplays and make both short and long films. Ideal for anyone who doesn't go to film school."
--Lew Hunter, screenwriter, author of Lew Hunter's Screenwriting 434, and UCLA Screenwriting Professor and Chair Emeritus
"Will completely de-mystify the process of making a movie. Everything you need to know is here; you'll only have to supply the guts and a good story."
--Chris Vogler, Former Fox development executive and author of The Writer's Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers

"The Portable Film School should be mandatory reading not just for those unable to go to film school, but for anyone thinking about it or even currently attending it."
--David Benullo, former student and co-writer of the screenplay for Around The World In 80 Days

"A crash course in a film school education. The Portable Film School is rated "R" for required reading."
--Sheldon Woodbury, author of Cool Million: How to Become A Million-Dollar
Screenwriter, and screenwriting professor in the Department of Dramatic Writing at New York University

"An excellent starter set for the fledgling filmmaker."
--David McKenna, professor at Columbia University, Film Division

"Not only is The Portable Film School loaded with pertinent and valuable information told in an easy to absorb style but also it's truly enjoyable and fun to be in his "class." This instructor deserves high marks himself!"
--Rick Rosenberg, Chris/Rose Productions, Emmy and Peabody Award Winning Producer. "The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman," Miramax's "Down In The Delta," A&E's "The Crossing"
