From the Inside Flap

Praise for Filmmaking Stuff

"Engaging and enthusiastic, Jason Brubaker has written an excellent introduction to the new landscape of filmmaking - especially for those just starting out their careers."

-- Jon Reiss, author of "Think Outside The Box Office"


"Jason Brubaker's 'Filmmaking Stuff' gives the Independent Filmmaker a rare insight into how to make a feature film with a proven step-by-step formula from an indie filmmaker who has 'been-there- done-that-and got the T-shirt.' Not only does Jason Brubaker understand the business and creative side of filmmaking, he is also an expert in using the Internet and Social Media to finance and distribute any film today. This fact alone is reason enough to always have this book sitting beside your computer."

-- Peter D. Marshall, Filmmaker


"Speaking from his own hard won experience, Jason lays out a comprehensive plan to help the modern indie filmmaker get films made. If you care more about making good movies and telling good stories, than about being Hollywood, let Filmmaking Stuff show you the way."
--

-- Gordon Firemark, Entertainment Attorney 


"There are lots of books that tell you the technical aspects of how to make a movie. This one answers the question you'll face when it's done: 'Now what?' If you care about having people actually pay to see your movie, get this book."

-- Jurgen Wolff, author of "Your Writing Coach"


"The process of script to distribution is now much more complicated and labor intensive. Producers must wear even more hats on the job and be much more knowledgeable about the business of film than they once were. Fortunately, Jason has written this book to help educate and inspire producers of this new century to take advantage of the wonderful tools the internet has given us all to reach audiences worldwide."

-- Sheri Candler, Marketing and Publicity Specialist


"Jason personally guides you through the many important things you need to know to create a great film. This book has exceptional tips for saving money and marketing."


-- Carole Dean, author of "Art of Funding Second Edition"


"A real page turner. This is a must read for any filmmaker who does not enjoy being suckered by middlemen."

-- Kim Callahan, Hollywood Talent Manager


"If you want to make movies, if you already make movies and want to sell them, if you already sell movies and want to make more money, you owe yourself a few hours with Jason's newest book. It has the potential to change everything for you. I don't know anyone who knows (and appreciates) indie DIY filmmaking better than Jason. 'Filmmaking Stuff' is packed with solid know-how... It's that one serious tool that indies have been needing."

-- Norman C. Berns, Producer/Director

I bought this for my son, who is trying to develop his own film, and decided to read it myself so I could see what he was getting into. And I was glad I bought it and glad I read it. The book has lots of good information on what to do with your movie at each step of the way. The new ways of marketing that available in todays society were especially eye openings. Definitely worth reading if you are looking to break into this field.

Jason did a great job of creating a foundation and coaching you into creating a film. This would have received a 5 star rating, but some concepts were not fleshed out enough. This wouldn't stop you from understanding the concepts and shouldn't stop you from reading it. Overall, I liked the book, and would purchase it again.

Filmmaking Stuff: How to marke, market and sell your movie without the middle man. Was a fantastic and fast read. I have always enjoyed Jason Brubaker's podcasts and books. This one has more insight than any of his previous works and isn't filled with total techical jargon that makes indie filmmakers confused and ready to pack it in and give up. Right from the first page to the last I was able to keep up with everything he has said and make numerous notes and recieve valuble information to pursue my filmmaking career. When Jason publishes more books I will deffinatly buy them to keep up to date with everything he creates. I highly recommend this valuble guide to any aspiring filmmaker out there .

Format: Paperback
If you're thinking about dipping a toe (or your whole body) into the world of independent movie-making, this book provides a concise, easy-to-read overview of every step of the process. The author takes you from writing the script, through what to expect when shooting, and finally what to do, realistically, with the movie once you've finished it.

If you just graduated from USC with a degree in film...maybe not the book you're looking for (though it might be worth a gander just for the marketing/internet stuff). But for the novice or intermediate moviemaker, Filmmaking Stuff might be exactly what you need to get your act together.
