In 1998, Tom Malloy was one of the lead actors in the film Gravesend, produced by Oliver Stone. The film became an indie-cult favorite. When this film failed to make him a household name, Tom decided to learn as many facets of the movie business as he could. Over the course of eight years, he created his own method to ?nance films. Tom first wrote and produced The Attic, a thriller directed by Mary Lambert (director of Pet Sematary and Pet Sematary II), and starring John Savage, Jason Lewis, Elisabeth Moss, and Tom. Tom then wrote and produced The Alphabet Killer, a psychological thriller directed by Rob Schmidt (director of Wrong Turn). The ?lm stars Eliza Dushku, Cary Elwes, Oscar-winner Timothy Hutton, Michael Ironside, and Tom in one of the lead roles. Tom wrote and produced Love N’ Dancing, a dance ?lm/romantic comedy directed by Rob Iscove (director of She’s All That). The ?lm stars Amy Smart and Tom, along with Billy Zane, Betty White, and Rachel Dratch. As a direct result of contacts made through the techniques of Bankroll, Tom recently partnered with the Han Shi group of China to produce a slate of U.S. films over the next three years.
This book is very easy to read and full of information.
Malloy believes in positive thinking and positive speaking and this permeates his book as he lays out practical, honest advice for getting your movie made.
