Great Read! Must read for any filmmaker!

I saw some of Shane Stanley's interviews on the film courage YouTube channel (also highly recommended) and wanted to hear more from him so I bought the Audiobook.

Usually when I listen to Audiobooks whole doing another task (dishes, laundry etc.. ) this book though I ended up sitting down and taking notes while listening.

This book manages to do a few things... On one hand it will scare the Bejesus out of you and probably convince you never to produce a movie in your life. But if you are crazy and dedicated enough to produce a film anyways than it will be an extremely useful tool in the process.
Either way it will be a thoroughly enlighting and enjoyable experience.

If you read this book and "producer to producer" you will have a great basic education in film production (which of course could never replace experience, but you have to start somewhere).

I wish it had a bit more detail on international filmmaking since a lot of us are not based in the U.S. Understandable though because Stanley is based in the U.S. and that is his Forte.

So as someone who has been to film school and learned plenty new things from this book, I can definitely recommend this read.

Thanks Stanley for this useful tool, can't wait for the next one.
