The Business of Documentary Filmmaking - A practical guide for emerging New Zealand Filmmakers
by Lloyd Spencer Davis and Claudia Babirat

You have to be in touch with what the market wants, create a tailored product, sell it to a client, and keep promoting yourself to keep your business alive. The ways in which you achieve these goals, however, are peculiar to the world of filmmaking.

Claudia Babirat and Lloyd Spencer Davis pool their considerable experience to provide this clearly written, practical how-to manual on running a successful business in documentary filmmaking in New Zealand. This comprehensive, no-nonsense guidebook gives step-by-step advice on how to become an independent filmmaker of the future.

The Business of Documentary Filmmaking examines the role of the independent filmmaker, and explains how you get a foot in the door, form an independent production company, write budgets and business plans, access funding and market your business. This book is brimming with helpful advice and important industry contacts as well as essential information provided by industry professionals - from filmmakers and broadcasters to entertainment lawyers and accountants. The fascinating case studies of practising filmmakers inspire with their originality and energy.
