A Bible on the Topic, 24 Dec 2007
The new global edition of The Film Finance Handbook: How to Fund Your Film is a bible on the topic. Set out in straightforward language the book is an extensive guide for those new to the industry and seasoned professionals alike. For the filmmaker starting out, the book not only guides you - using simple analogies and a dash of humour - through the complex world of film finance, it also considers the important but often overlooked practical areas of research, networking, pitching and negotiating. For the experienced producer it contains a wealth of up-to-date and timesaving information, most notably an exhaustive section devoted to international incentives and an equally extensive global funding directory. The book also includes a very timely chapter on the impact of the Internet on the film industry and explores the financial possibilities offered by this so-called `Seventh Major'. I have not been able to find a book on film finance as comprehensive as this.
