Louise is a fantastic mentor and her book has become a mainstay... I had the opportunity to attend two workshops featuring her, as well as a private consultation and she is definitely an experienced, grounded voice in the field of film finance.
Her book clearly lays out everything you need to know about writing a business plan for your independent feature film and it provides clear examples and reasoning for why things are done the way they're done.
By all means, this is a MUST-READ for every independent director, producer and filmmaker.
After going through the entire book in just a few days (I must admit it's a quick read) I found that the explanations were just slightly above basic knowledge and the CD contains only a few forms and worksheets to fill out. The best chapter (Chapter 10), which has a sample business plan, is NOT included in the CD-ROM! This was a complete disappointment since I expected to use this as digital blue print to fill in the blanks for my own business plan.
All things considered I did learn some useful principles on how to prepare and present information to potential investors and how to analyze some number (getting them boils down to research and a lot of work, which the Levison herself will admit to) but I really expected more out of the author of the business plan for the Blair Witch Project.
