I have a love-hate relationship with this book. It's pocket-sized so aside from your kindle, or smartphone, this is an easy carry-around. However, the font is SO SMALL even with my glasses on. It was $10 used but it cost just as much to ship it, so I ended up paying almost $20.00. I think the smartphone with kindle app, would have been better. It's smaller and at least I could re-size the font. The only reason I'm not refunding is b/c of shipping .Honestly the website was just as informative. Wanted to support the filmmakers but next time they need a "larger book format" or make the font bigger.
Fantastic book. My third book owned from this author. Go and buy it. The most up to date of the three. Handily fits in your pocket on set. I kept it handy on my first feature, not just as a reference but also as a bit of inspiration when needed.
EVERY indie filmmaker on a budget needs to read this, even if they're experienced like I already am. Great down to earth knowledge with very little esoteric fluff. A fairly short read, but that's why you get Amazon Prime, so you can get it for a good price.
The laminated cover and straightforward writing style makes it a great book to leave over your toilet to converts guests into aspiring filmmakers.
