"Breaking through, Selling out, Dropping dead, and other notes on Filmmaking", paperback, revised & updated edition, by William Bayer.

Paperback, 1993. 234 pages. Includes topic notes arranged alphabetically and "notes on the notes" at the end.

Very good (near new) condition.


"This guide to Hades for those who aspire to direct feature films is packed with valuable information and practical advice both on the craft of professional film making and on the wiles necessary to survive in a 'rotten system'. Bayer covers such varied topics as the American film institute, agents, breaking into the industry, close-ups, film festivals, and the production of low-budget features.He exposes the corrupt and dishonest ploys of studios, distributors, and exhibitors, and warns, "The only law here is the law of the jungle." The book is tough, opinionated, witty, cynical, angry, idealistic, and highly informative. Young hopefuls will find it invaluable; general readers too will find it mighty interesting."
