THE guide to the film industry. April 28, 2011
I don't know where to begin with this review. First, I would say this textbook is more for an advanced student/filmmaker and even for the borderline professional filmmaker who has a budget already and a script and a cast, staff etc. This rental textbook has a ton of practical information, presented in a succinct and pleasing formal. I know it may sound like I'm gushing, but every so often a textbook comes along that covers literally every aspect of its topic. This is one of these textbooks. Highly recommended.
