I am a producer-director with over 50 local and 30 national commercials under my belt. I have gone to film school, spents 4-years and wasted (now in retrospect) almost $120,000. Why? Because I should have read Dov's book for only $18.95. For "FROM REEL TO DEAL" gives more practical, realistic information about how to break into the film industry with your initial independent feature film then I acquired after 4-years at NYU Film School. If this book was available when I was in film school, and I had read it, I guarantee you I would have dropped out of NYU and launched my feature film career. Thank you Mr Simens for giving the real information about how Hollywood and the Film Business truly works with respect to independents. Buy this book!
Like everyone else, I agree that this is a straight to the point book and I'm telling you to read it. I could'nt put it down. Yes it is that good. Some people on here claim that they went to USC or NYU and learned nothing but theory. I always thought these schools were decent since some of the big shots went there but I went to Columbia college which supposibly is the best film school in chicago.

This is the scoop on going to film school:

You first must take theory classes(watch old movies, silent films yatta, yatta!! Along with an asthetic class.

Then you take classes like development and screenwriting which arent what they seem. Columbia teaches this thing called Development and pre-production which is nothing more but a class to take up time and steal your money. You learn how to write a treatment. Thats all you learn. Even my teacher called it BULL SH**. YOu can learn how to write one in 10 minutes from a book or someone. The screenwriting course... Read more
Yeah yeah yeah, I read everyone else's rave reviews about Dov Simens's classes. And yes yes yes they're full of energy and facts. While Dov fills his classes with eager faces, and fills these eager faces with fascinating facts, Mr. Simens fails us all in one major respect: he conveniently leaves out the part about how to really really really get the money from potential investors.
I was excited about calling up those "stupid dentists," as he calls them, and asking them to come to a local theatre where I'd have the DP's 35-mm reel to show them. Bummer when I discovered that NOT A SINGLE DP IN HOLLYWOOD USES 35-mm REELS. They all have their stuff on DVDs. So, Mr. Simens's theatre model is now shot. Ok, no problemo. I booked a local hotel conference room and rented a big-screen TV for the DVD viewing.
When I invited everyone over for the party, one stupid dentist, who was also a former securities attorney, asked, "Will you be giving us the PPM this... Read more
