Often low-budget filmmakers get thrown into the position of being not only the director, but their own producer. Using tips from the finest washed-up has-been producers in the business, this book will give the low-budget filmmaker practical tools for getting a movie shoot started, and keeping it going until it is supposed to end. Producers like Eli Roth, James Gunn, Paul Simon (and more!) chime in with real-world advice and tidbits for aspiring producers. This volume reveals the secrets of producing a low-budget independent film. Covering everything about production from the initial movie idea, all the way through pre-production and up to the first day of principal photography (including budgeting concerns to production-damaging acts of God), you'll get the inside track to producing your own damn movie. As the founder of the longest-running independent film studio, Troma, no one speaks with more authority than Lloyd Kaufman. He reveals the best ways to find investors, deal with legalities, scout for locations (can Tijuana pass for New York City?), and maintain the schedule and (micro)budget. Hysterical in tone, filmmakers and producers won't be able to put this book down. Produce Your Own Damn Movie! is the second volume in the Focal Press series Your Own Damn Film School. Don't miss the first volume in the series, Direct Your Own Damn Movie! * Learn the secrets of producing, from finding investors (Mom & Dad, your local dentist) to location scouting (Can Tijuana pass for New York City?) and more! * Essential low-budget producing information from the president of Troma Entertainment, the oldest truly independent film studio in history * Loaded with examples from producers like James Gunn (Dawn of the Dead), Steven Paul (Ghost Rider), and more!
