You don't have to go to film school to make movies, and WHAT THEY DON'T TEACH YOU AT FILM SCHOOL offers a cheaper alternative than a year's tuition at any so-called centre of excellence. This incredible book has effective solutions for surviving both the large and small crises of filmmaking. From how to finish (or get started on..) a script, through dealing with jealous actors, abandoned lovers, mutinous film crews, angry landlords, and even angrier investors, the two authors of this book know what it takes to get to the top, no matter what. Film industry veterans Camille Landau and Tiare White draw from their own experiences and those of other filmmakers to show readers how to make a film on their own terms. Filled with pointed anecdotes, warm humour, and healthy common sense, sections include: * Inventing celebrity. * Taking story meetings with eight year olds. * How shyness will get you nowhere. * Ten answers to 'Are you done yet?' * Don't fall in love with the cast or crew (but if you do...)
