The Guerilla Film Makers Handbook with CDROM Reviews
I'd have to agree with the previous reviewer that this is a PACKED volume of information. There is definitely a lot of information here.
After being highly recommended by other film makers, I had great expectations for this book. I found it to be mediocre. There are some tidbits of good information, but good luck keeping your eyes open long enough to find them. I expected all kinds of tips and tricks and to be honest I was pretty disappointed.
Basically this book is a three part book. The start of the book goes into the film making process, what it is about, why bother and how to get started. It gives you a general air of what is going on before a film starts shooting.
Though I found many aspects of this book helpful, I thought the book was too Oriented towards Filmmakers in the UK where much of their filmmaking industry is government subsidized. An aspring filmmaker in the US will not find many parts of this book useful (film lottery, and UK legal system). But the parts that are generic to all filmmakers are what makes the book worth buying.
