Making your own film can be complicated, infuriating, crazy, and expensive - not to mention incredibly hard work.

Never set up an office before? You'll need to, and we can tell you how. Worried about putting together - and sticking to - a realistic budget for your movie? No problem, we can show you how to do that, too. Ever had to feed a hungry film crew? We know what they like to eat, and how to make it cheaply. How about a press kit for your movie, for the upcoming festival? Yup, all covered in here. We've seen it, done it, and learned the hard way. Now it's your turn. The authors have made their own low budget movies, given hundreds of workshops, and sold over 100,000 copies of their filmmaking handbooks.
