Amazon Exclusive: A Letter from Eve Honthaner, Author of The Complete Film Production Handbook

Dear Amazon Readers,

This book, now in its fourth edition, has been an amazing journey. It’s continued to evolve and improve as my career has expanded and the industry has changed in ways I couldn’t even imagine when it first came out. Because our business has become more specialized, what started as a collection of material that encompassed the scope of my experience has come to include incredibly valuable information on various facets of the industry. I couldn’t share this with you without the help of several colleagues, friends and friends of friends who generously contributed their expertise to this and past editions. I’ve learned a great deal from them and continue to learn from the many talented individuals I’ve had the privilege to work with–the behind-the-scenes heroes who know how to make the magic happen while sticking to a budget and schedule, keeping the cast and crew happy (and moving), helping to achieve the director’s vision and creatively overcoming countless daily challenges.

I collect new information and memorable experiences from every job and project I work on–both for the book and (when I teach) for the benefit of my students, who are the ones who never fail to remind me of why I love being in this business.

My goal is to make your job easier by compiling material on a great many aspects of production, providing useful checklists, an array of forms and loads of practical advice that will help you make your film. I want to guide you through the process, so you’ll want to do again and then again after that–whether it’s a 10-minute short or a big studio feature.

The Complete Film Production Handbook has become an industry standard, and I can’t tell you how gratifying it is to see it in production offices and on sets–to know that it’s helping film students and filmmakers all over the country. I’m grateful every time it’s purchased, used and recommended, but would especially like to thank those who have been buying the book since its first edition.

-Eve Honthaner

Purchased in 2011 & still relevant I purchased this as I started to produce indie projects. There is so much information and all of the info here trumps whatever you can find on Wiki. Even the forms that are available online to download are extremely helpful. If you’re new to working on union projects, this is your go-to. If not, this is still your go-to. As often as info and facts change lately, this book will continue to be relevant for some time to come.

Lots of Info Inside! There’s a lot of info in this book. Great for anyone that needs a breakdown of all departments, paperwork and forms for things, and clarification on the different jobs in the film business.
