Reed Martin interviewed more than one hundred luminaries from the independent film world to discuss the near misses that almost derailed their first and second films and identify the close shaves that could have cut their careers short. Other books may tell you the best way to make your independent film or online short, but no other book describes so candidly how to spot and avoid such issues and obstacles as equipment problems, shooting-day snafus, postproduction myths, theatrical distribution deal breakers, and dozens of other commonly made missteps, including the top fifty mistakes every filmmaker makes.From personal experience and his years as a freelance reporter covering independent film forUSA TodayandFilmmakermagazine, Martin uncovers the truth about the risks and potential rewards that go with chasing celluloid glory. Whether youre writing a screenplay, looking for financing, about to start shooting, or thinking about investing time and money (or someone elses money) in an independent film,The Reel Truthis a must-read.
