Read how to "Just Do It",
This review is from: Guerilla Film Makers Handbook 3e (Paperback)
I'm a huge fan of this series of books - which also includes the Guerilla Film Makers Movie Blueprint, the Documentary Film Makers Handbook - and have been from the first edition of this, their "title" tome.
What makes this book so much more relevant for the beginner Guerilla is the combination of fantastic guides and information on filmmaking, born from Jones and Jolliffe's personal experiences on all three of their indie features, but also the vast amount of "personal experience" stories littered throughout and compiled at the back of the book.
When I was starting out, I gained a huge amount of knowledge from this book, but I also found it both inspiring and reassuring that there were conversations with filmmakers who had been where I was and managed to achieve their goals.
Written in a clear, concise style and easy to dip in and out of for tips, information or success stories, this is a must-have for any aspiring filmmaker and, I'd venture to say, should be on the shelf of all successful filmmakers, too.
