This is the single best work on financing independent films. Mr. Lee presents an overall structure clearly and efficiently. This is not a "war stories" book. The landscape of the film business is changing rapidly and this is one of the only producing books about real producing. Mr. Lee and Ms. Gillen address one of the most difficult aspects of producing - financing---in a direct way that lays out the tasks and challenges an independent producer needs to know; they do not sugar-coat the business - it's all business; they explain the intricacies of financing while making it understandable. There is more to financing a film than developing a business plan and this book shows why. While there are a few, very few, books that are no-nonsense for producers, this is the only producing book that addresses financing with practical, in-depth information geared toward working producers that is efficiently written and presented.
