Library Journal Review

Practical advice for the low-budget filmmaker should be welcome wherever it's available. The author, a working filmmaker, has gathered two dozen colleagues to answer basic questions about budgets, scripts, publicity, and distribution. This is hardly a cross-section of independent filmmaking, though; all of the participants are young males, most of them working in the horror, sf, or thriller genres. Christine Vachon's recent Shooting To Kill (LJ 9/1/98) contains a more concentrated series of lessons from a filmmaker whose work as a producer covers a broader spectrum of experience. Recommended only for very large collections or those with a heavy concentration in the performing arts.ÄTom Wiener, "Satellite DIRECT" (c) Copyright 2010.
