"I found Filmmaking For Dummies a thorough and informative read: a complete A to Z that demystifies not only production, but pre- and post- production as well. Stoller paints a picture of filmmaking so basic that you'd have to be not just a dummy but completely braindead if you're unable to make your own movie after closing the book." (Entertainment Weekly, September 5, 2003)

Because the business evolves so quickly, some of the info are incomplete, but I still recommend this book to any film-making student. It's cheap enough and will certainly open your eyes on a few details you might have passed on your pre-production.
