If you want to be a successful film producer, you'll keep Film Business close at hand: one copy on your desk and one copy on your bedside table.

The Producer makes films happen. With all the skill of the best circus juggler the producer moves a film project forward from idea to release,as quickly as possible, on time and on budget. The producer has clear goals and oversees the creative process with efficiency, passion and unflagging enthusiasm.

Film Business explains all you need to know to become a successful producer. The book covers building a business plan, selecting and analysing scripts, and creating strategies for deal-making, as well as the production and marketing of projects in a range of genres and markets from traditional cinema to digital interactive media and multi platforms.
