From Publishers Weekly
Celluloid will always be their first love, acknowledge the authors of Digital Filmmaking 101: An Essential Guide to Producing Low-Budget Movies. But after their second feature-length film, Beyond Bob, Dale Newton and John Gaspard recognized that they might never shoot in such an expensive medium again, "at least not when we were putting up the money." With chatty, postslacker humor and savvy one chapter is called "Special Effects (Please Pass the Construction Paper)" they guide the novice through each stage of using digital film: writing the script, drawing up a budget, getting funding, equipment, cast, crew, etc. Would-be indie filmmakers seeking practical, friendly advice will find this a handy reference.

On the other hand, the book has a lot of information about how to get started, how to set up a small production company, equipment you'll need, creating and working within a tight budget, planning and working within a production schedule, finding and auditioning actors and crew, sourcing equipment, post production, distribution, and a lot of other useful stuff. I recommend it as a good place for any aspiring indie filmmaker to start.
I would recommend this book just for the organizational advice alone.
I give it 3 stars for the effort and for the final chapter on movie distribution and the forms included in the appendix.
I also feel RIPPED OFF because this book has NOTHING to do with digital filmmaking. They only vagelly mention digital technology. I think anyone who wants to make a quick buck can sue these guys for having such a missleading title for the book.
