Reviews of Filmmaking, the Hard Way by Josh Folan

John reviewed on Nov. 13, 2013

good book. it reads well and has some good ideas. (note to self, ask girlfriend for $5000). even though i worked on the movie its fair to say I knew almost nothing of what was really going on. so it was good to read about what I never knew anyway and I especially liked the section on distribution. per·spi·ca·cious.

The information Josh Folan gives in this book is straightforward and the tips written will definitely be useful for aspiring independent filmmakers.

This book helped me understand better the logistics of making an independent film, the difficulties and ways to deal with them, and covers everything from script to distribution.

A must read for every person working or planning to work in the independent film industry.
