Low Budget Know-How

Indie Film Producing wasn't actually listed as recommended reading for my film course at Uni, but it should be! A friend actually recommended it to me and I am glad I followed her advice. It is a straightfoward read full of insider tips, and I am grateful for the guide to getting funding which is helping with my current nightmare immensely. This isn't a casual read for fans of indie films, but for film students and new-starters this book is the business.

Real World Application

This is an insanely helpful book about producing an independent film. It covers everything you need to know from beginning to end. I'm using it as a guide for my first indie movie. It seriously has much more real-world information than my film classes ever did.
