This is the single best work on financing independent films. Mr. Lee presents an overall structure clearly and efficiently. This is not a "war stories" book. The landscape of the film business is changing rapidly and this is one of the only producing books about real producing. Mr. Lee and Ms. Gillen address one of the most difficult aspects of producing - financing---in a direct way that lays out the tasks and challenges an independent producer needs to know; they do not sugar-coat the business - it's all business; they explain the intricacies of financing while making it understandable. There is more to financing a film than developing a business plan and this book shows why. While there are a few, very few, books that are no-nonsense for producers, this is the only producing book that addresses financing with practical, in-depth information geared toward working producers that is efficiently written and presented. You can count on me to continue to use it.---Don Smith, Associate Chair & Associate Professor, Film & Video Department, Columbia College This is a timely book, detailing a proven method for success and providing relevant data for both investors and filmmakers, especially now that the Commodity Futures Trading Commission recently approved trading of film box office performance futures by Cantor Exchange and media derivatives by Trend Exchange.---Jillian Alexander, MBA, CM&AA, CHRC, Managing Director, Corporate Development & Strategy, Conduit Consulting LLC, Former VP-Corporate Development, SONY Pictures Entertainment and member SONY US Ventures team Converging digital media and powerful new monetization models are growing entertainment amidst an overall slipping global economy. In show business, everyone is in love with the show, but it's the business of making significant money that turns on the big boys and girls inside the tent. Learn what they already know by reading this new edition.---Steve Ecclesine, Independent Producer (12 motion pictures and more than 700 Television episodes) It is so sharply focused and so easy to digest, I am going to make it the official textbook for my online course in independent film marketing and sales across all platforms. Regarding internet marketing strategies, Chapter 4 clearly states insights we have all heard about but are often 100 overwhelmed to focus in on. While clearly stating such marketing is not easily done and requires a full-time person, the writers Lee and Gillen make it seem easy enough to use the "most effective social network sites...that specialize in unique communities. There are thousands of these. As of January, 2010, there were 37 global social network sites with 10 million or more members each, plus the following five global social network sites with 100 million or more members". There are also really useful case studies on District 9 and Paranormal Activity. Finally, Chapter 6 makes financing into an almost scientific activity, with clearly written and easily understood descriptions of various financial models which previously seemed veiled in obscure terms.---Sydney Levine, SydneysBuzz on IndieWIRE and IMDb, Online Instructor: UCLA Extension If you've ever wondered how most films can "lose" money while the studios remain in business, you'll find the answers here. This is a comprehensive and revealing examination of how distribution works and how the money flows.---Robert Goodman, Videography

The Screenplay Business

The development of a film screenplay is a complex and collaborative process, beginning with an initial story and continuing through drafting and financing to the start of the shoot. And yet the best ways of understanding and managing this process have never been properly studied. The Screenplay Business is the first book to do exactly that, addressing such questions as: How do film scripts get written, and what are the tensions between creativity and business? How can the team of the writer, producer, director and development executive work together most effectively? The Screenplay Business presents a theoretical and practical framework for understanding the business of independent script development, and encompasses ideas about creativity, motivation, managing creative people, value chains, and MBA leadership theories. This book will help producers and writers to nurture their stories through the long development process to the screen. It explains the international film business, and contains new research and extensive interviews with leading industry figures, including practical advice on how to run script meetings and handle notes; how to build a sustainable business; and how to understand what really happens when a script is written. The Screenplay Business is a new key text for academics and students researching film and media, and indispensable reading for anyone working in film screenplay development today.

These seventeen essays make up a history of the American film industry. Because film-making entails a special blend of economic and artistic endeavor, Kindem has chosen contributions from experts in a variety of fields—business, law, mass communications, and cinema studies. The organization of this anthology is both chronological and topical. The first three parts of the book basically follow the history of the film industry’s marketing strategies, structural changes, and product innovations: from exhibition in Kinetoscope arcades to film “acts” in vaudeville, Nickelodeons, and movie palaces; from states’ rights marketing schemes to block booking and chain-store exhibition strategies; from a production and distribution monopoly based on the pooling of major patents to an oligopoly of produc­tion, distribution, and exhibition firms; and from the rise of feature films, the star system, and the studio system to Hollywood’s con­versions to sound and color. The fourth through sixth parts examine film regulation and censorship, film’s inter­action with television, and America’s role in the international film industry. The diversity of methods and perspectives in this anthol­ogy are representative of the field, suggesting that the history of the American film indus­try is really a collection of histories, not a monolithic, single-strand chronology of events.

This book looks at aspects of the relationship between British and American cinema covering the period from the First World War until the 1960s. It deals with the ways in which the two industries have sought to intervene in the affairs of the other, and examines how British subject matter drawn from history, literature, drama, biography has had a place in the American film since the earliest days. The history of the British cinema - its institutions and its films - has been closely intertwined with the history of the American cinema since films were first made and viewed in the late 19th century. In many ways it has been a one-sided relationship with Hollywood exerting a powerful influence on the British film industry, shap

The last decade has witnessed an explosion of interest in film festivals, with the field growing to a position of prominence within the space of a few short years. Film Festivals: History, Theory, Method, Practice represents a major addition to the literature on this topic, offering an authoritative and comprehensive introduction to the area. With a combination of chapters specifically examining history, theory, method and practice, it offers a clear structure and systematic approach for the study of film festivals. Offering a collection of essays written by an international range of established scholars, it discusses well-known film festivals in Europe, North America and Asia, but equally devotes attention to the diverse range of smaller and/or specialized events that take place around the globe. It provides essential knowledge on the origin and development of film festivals, discusses the use of theory to study festivals, explores the methods of ethnographic and archival research, and looks closely at the professional practice of programming and film funding. Each section, moreover, is introduced by the editors, and all chapters include useful suggestions for further reading. This will be an essential textbook for students studying film festivals as part of their film, media and cultural studies courses, as well as a strong research tool for scholars that wish to familiarize themselves with this burgeoning field.
