Aside from laugh-out-loud, brutal comments on some of the foibles of modern filmmakers, this book is stuffed full of practical advice. Written by someone who has been in the trenches for many years, it’s a welcome addition to any aspiring filmmaker’s shelf, but it’s especially useful for those of us who are operating on a shoestring budget. The numerous, dated references to (non-digital) film don’t detract from the work. Rather, they offer insight into the problem-solving skills that are generally useful in this work.
