$50 Billion of Advice in One Book* Have you ever wondered why some books and stories are adapted into movies, and others aren’t? Or wished you could sit down and pick the brains of the people whose stories have been adapted – or the screenwriters, producers, and directors who adapted them? Author John Robert Marlow has done it for you. He spoke to book authors, playwrights, comic book creators and publishers, as well as Hollywood screenwriters, producers and directors responsible for adapting fictional and true stories into Emmy-winning TV shows, Oscar-winning films, billion-dollar megahits and smaller independents. Then he talked to the entertainment attorneys who made the deals. He came away with a unique understanding of adaptations – an understanding he shares in this book: which stories make good source material (and why); what Hollywood wants (and doesn’t); what you can (and can’t) get in a movie deal; how to write and pitch your story to maximize the chances of a Hollywood adaptation – and how much (and when) you can expect to be paid. *This book contains the distilled experience of creators, storytellers and others whose works have earned over $50 billion worldwide. Whether you’re looking to sell film rights, adapt your own story (alone or with help), or option and adapt someone else’s property – this book is for you.

Make Your Own Damn Movie!: Secrets of a Renegade Director


$16.72


Lloyd Kaufman, the writer/producer/director of such cult-classic films as "The Toxic Avenger," "Class of Nuke ‘Em High," and "Tromeo and Juliet," offers a guide to movie-making unlike any other available anywhere. In 25 years, Kaufman, along with partner Michael Herz, has built Troma Studios up from a company struggling to find its voice in a field crowded with competitors to its current–and legendary–status as a lone survivor, a bastion of true cinematic independence, and the world’s greatest collection of camp on film. As entertaining and funny as it is informative and insightful, "Make Your Own Damn Movie " places Kaufman’s radically low-budget, independent-studio style of filmaking directly in the reader’s hands. Thus we learn how to: develop and write a knock-out screenplay; raise funding; find locations and cast actors; hire a crew; obtain equipment, permits, and music rights (all for little or no money); make incredible special effects for $0.79 each; charm, schmooze, and network while on the film-festival circuit; and, finally, make a bad actor act so bad it’s actually good. From scriptwriting and directing to financing and marketing, this book is brimming with utterly off-the-wall, decidedly maverick, yet consistently proven advice on how to fully develop one’s idea for an independent film.
