Also “The Big Picture” by Tim Reilly, Woody Allen’s 1st AD, is a great book about making movies, by the way.

I remember reading so many books about filmmaking and it was the first one that had useful practical advice. I have no idea why so many books out there on making movies even exist other than to pump up some kid’s dreams long enough to swipe $30 off of them.

The Big Picture was a good one though.
