"Just read your book. A must read for people trying to raise cash for movies! I'm pretty sure that I know the guy 'Pat' you mentioned in the early chapters..."

"Gabe's book is the proverbial 'magical wand' that indie filmmakers have been searching for to make their cinematic dreams come true.  Bottom line: if you want to succeed, read this book."

"Gabriel Campisi's book is an invaluable tool for anyone serious about making movies. The knowledge I gained is amazing. The interviews with the Hollywood heavy hitters is golden advice. Pure information right from the source. The film business is a tough nut to crack, but this book is a great resource to help anyone who wants to succeed. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone who wants to learn the insides of the movie business. Gabriel Campisi did us all a favor by writing this book."

From the Author

Nothing beats good advice like a seasoned professional speaking from true and tried practical experience. For this second edition of The Independent Filmmaker's Guide to Writing a Business Plan for Investors, I interviewed a dozen individuals in Part Two of the manuscript to support all the nuts-and-bolts information I conveyed in Part One. These filmmakers and producers are the real deal. If you're an avid moviegoer, you will definitely recognize their movies. Most have produced or directed a slew of blockbuster and award-winning films. Like hardened battlefield warriors, they provide information with authority on a subject they have come to know all too well.

The filmmakers and producers include those behind such notable hits as Jurassic Park, Minority Report
, Twister, Monster (with Charlize Theron & Cristina Ricci), Tron and Tron: Legacy, Backdraft, Robin Hood, Glengarry Glen Ross, The Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits (90's TV revivals), Witchboard, Night of the Demons, Southland Tales, Moll Flanders, Poltergeist: The Legacy, and Schindler's List, to name a few.
