Making Movies: The Inside Guide to Independent Movie Production [Paperback]
John Russo (Author)
FFrom Library Journal
Veteran independent filmmaker Russo outlines the moviemaking process step by step, from developing an idea to selling the finished product, including sections on budgeting, pre- and post-production, raising money, technical aspects of shooting and editing, and dealing with agents, lawyers, and distributors. What sets Russo's book apart is the pragmatic, no-holds-barred quality of his information--this is eminently useful, down-to-earth, learn-from-my-mistakes (and successes) advice. There are interesting interviews with other "successful" indies like George Romero (with whom Russo started on Night of the Living Dead ), Lizzie Borden, Sam Raimi, Tom Savini, and Tobe Hooper, and an appendix of sample contracts.
