For just $2.99, this book packs in a lot of excellent tips. (Example: Sign up for the 2 week free trial of IMDb Pro and make a list of the contact info for every director, producer, actor, etc. that fits into your genre so you can stop wasting time on message boards in search of this info.) It's also got great advice for those of us who don't happen to live in Hollywood, but don't want to come off as "outsiders," as well as some best practices for social media usage. While I've been reading about Twitter etiquette for a while now, I had never really thought about applying the 80/20 principle to the number of fun vs. self-promotional tweets I put out there, but it makes complete sense.
Even if you're not planning on writing and selling a brilliant script, this book contains some great networking advice that can benefit anyone eventually looking to sell their latest novel, CD or widget. If there's one thing that's too important to screw up, it's networking. Rogan offers great advice for both the shy and the self-involved to bring more to the table than "Buy my script!", as well as a helpful dialogue to try out on industry gatekeepers.
Best money I've spent this week!
I loved this book - although it's geared towards the film industry, the points that Michael Rogan makes in the book point out how to make the best use of your time and legwork in order to get your script into the hands of people with some pull. He covers everything from business image, to the micro-pitch, to what festivals to attend, even how to go about the dreaded business of finding an agent. I'm actually surprised at the amount of insider information that he's sharing here. For the price, it's a steal.
