***This Updated & Expanded edition has almost 100 additional pages than the previous edition***

It’s just that - two decades’ worth of advice, do’s & don’ts, tips, tools, tricks, and more on how to write, direct, and produce an indie film.


And it’s all here: how to create characters, add subplots, deal with casting and rehearsals, find the beats, select your equipment, run your set, and even go from pre-production through to post-production.


This isn’t a boring textbook; rather, it’s a conversational reference manual. If you want to read it cover to cover, feel free, but just as easily, you can look up the aspect of indie filmmaking you are currently stuck on, turn to that section, and find plenty of inspiration and next steps so you can take your great idea to a great film.
