Book Description

Krane, renowned teacher and recipient of the Hollywood Visionary and Peoples' Choice awards, believes the motion picture industry is accidental, but doesn't have to be that way. Krane states, "I believe it can be turned into a rational, predictable Art & Science like all other century-old, multi- billion dollar global manufacturing industries. This theory is based on five fundamental principles identified as the foundation to the movie industry."

Krane was Founder, CEO and Chairman of the independent studio MCEG, and is the producer of more than 40 motion pictures, both studio and independent, including Face/Off, the Look Who's Talking trilogy, The General's Daughter, Primary Colors, Phenomenon, Michael, Blind Date, Without You I'm Nothing, Convicts, Cold Heaven and Swordfish, among other hit movies. In his 25 years in the industry, Krane also managed nearly 150 actors and writers, including John Travolta, Kim Basinger, Drew Barrymore, Teresa Russell, Sandra Bernhard and Howie Mandel, and directors such as Stephen Sommers, Nicholas Roeg, Keith Gordon, Randall Kleiser and Blake Edwards, to name a select few. Krane is known for his artistic creativity, ability and wealth of industry knowledge.

Krane believes the unregulated Hollywood movie industry is responsible for "interfering with the creative vision of countless professionals because the movie industry has no articulated, published, or even agreed-upon processes, activities, forces, rules, job functions, rights of passage, or even any definitions of commonly used words. This book was written to fix the 'Accidental Industry.'" While written for the classroom, industry professionals and film buffs will also learn from Krane's powerful insights.
