"Access is something you create in the same way you create credibility. You do the job right." The Producers Handbook presents deal structure and organizational practice for independent producers which do not require relationships with stars, super-agents and heads of studios, but rather rely on accepted, salient business practices -- which in turn not only engender such relationships, but successful, profitable, mainstream film making -- with distributors, agents, stars and investors who are pleased to be involved, and remain involved time after time. This material offers the most exciting, dynamic and pivotal business information and applications readers are likely to encounter in their entertainment career. Perhaps as life-changing as the day one sees their first motion picture or first determines to make motion pictures their life's work.

Finally, we have a comprehensive guide to the business of making movies the way movies are supposed to be made -- and written by someone who knows whereof he writes. No longer do filmmakers need luck or magic to succeed; The Producer's Business Handbook lays out all the details of show BUSINESS in a straightforward format that's as readable as it is informative. Lee's affable style of writing, which features a refreshing dose of enthusiasm for the ethical integrity still to be found in Hollywood, renders this book the perfect and indispensable blue-print for anyone -- novice or veteran -- hoping to succeed in the business of making motion pictures.

I'm a new producer starting my own production company, and this book is absolutely incredible. I'm buying copies for all the members of my company. The accompanying cd is phenomenal--I don't have to create any spreadsheets or charts; they're already there for me. I don't want to sound too gushing but I truly feel this book will be a vital resource for many production companies.

I recently took the producer's business seminar offered by John J. Lee Jr. Not only is he an exceptional speaker, but the material within the book is truly amazing. For new producers like myself, the book gives the reader a wealth of information on the film business. For those of you who are interested in the seminar, I would also recommend that. Its worth every penny!
