Overview

"Making Your First Film" is a concise and meaty resource that will pay for itself a thousand times over. It doesn't wax eloquent about things you don't have time to read. It's not an all encompassing treaty on filmmaking because reading text books won't get your film made. And it includes something that most books don't; the owner of the book receives THREE FREE emails and/or telephone contacts with our Hollywood Production Company, Castlight Pictures. We will take your emails and talk to you on the telephone to get you started. You will receive expertise from our producers/directors and writers. What book gives you that?

You've heard the adage in one of Tiger Woods' commercials that success is 90% perspiration and 10% inspiration. Well, filmmaking is about the same ratio. Darwinian odds are at play more than film schools and "long-winded" books want to admit. It's more about "doing" than "knowing."

Most people can figure out how to write, get written or buy a script. What they can't figure out is how to get the money to make their film and what to do next. Regardless if it's a short, a feature or a documentary only those who know how to mine their own resources and contacts to raise capital are going to be filmmakers. Anybody can write a script and hope Hollywood comes calling. I can't tell you how many scripts and people with them are out there. All waiting for an Agent, an Option, a Sale or Film Deal to propel them into what they really want to do: make films!

This book is different. If you don't want to work hard, and I mean hard, at making your film, go buy a treaty on filmmaking, hang out at Starbucks and tap on your laptop along with the others. However, if you're ready to make things happen, today, then let's get started.
