Are you looking for filmmaking books? As a filmmaker, one of the biggest problems YOU have is finding a way to get your movie made, seen and sold without waiting for some Hollywood yahoo to give you permission. And as you probably know, there are a lot of people who want to make movies. But very few people will actually take action.
The good news is this. You no longer need Hollywood. In fact, the future of filmmaking is not Hollywood. It is the thousands of independent filmmakers empowered by the digital revolution.
This filmmaking book shows YOU how to get the script, use crowdfunding to raise the money, make the journey from screenplay to screen, distribute your movie, and then build an audience eager to see your next movie!
Engaging and enthusiastic, Jason Brubaker has written an excellent introduction to the new landscape of filmmaking – especially for those just starting out their careers.
