    More Than a Great Book–It’s a Public Service, June 15, 2004
    By 
    Thomas R. Belin (Los Angeles, California USA) –

    This is more than a great book–it’s a public service. The
    authors share insights from their decades of legal and
    entertainment production experience, in essence offering
    thousands of dollars of free legal advice to aspiring
    independent producers. Beyond offering a roadmap of business-
    planning steps, the book includes templates of numerous legal
    forms that an independent producer might need. Meanwhile, in
    clear and artful prose, they alternate between You’re-Not-God
    straight talk and You-Can-Do-It encouragement. Between the
    lines, there seems to be a genuine interest in helping
    important stories and quality independent work to see the
    light of day. I’ve read other books on the business side of
    entertainment that were helpful, but this stands out as the
    best of the lot.

    The bible of independent film producer, August 26, 2003

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    If you are or want to become an independent film producer, this book will give you all of the business/legal knowledge of filmmaking you need. Even though I have not finished the book yet, I’ve already found this book to be extremely valuable. Because I am planning to produce a new film next year, I even called up Mr. Tulchin directly for legal advice. He was very friendly and took the time to give me great advices and was very knowledgeable in not just U.S. based entertainment law but also international entertainment law as well. Read this book and you will find it worth more than what you paid for!!!

    The Independent Film Producer’s Survival Guide is the most practical and concrete text on the Hollywood deal-making process that I have read to date. Its succinct presentation of the independent film business-legal process is welcome. Many of the real-world examples of independent producers struggling to secure the deal are thought provoking and encouraging. I believe that any independent film producer who reads and applies the information contained in the Survival Guide can only win. Film schools should seriously consider adding this publication to their list of reference texts.
