– New York Times

“Gold-standard technical reference book for filmmakers.”
-Boston Globe

“The bible – updated.”
– The Independent

“This is an essential book.”
-Self-Reliant Filmmaking

“You need this book. Billed as the authoritative guide to filmmaking from fundraising to distribution, the book achieves this in clear, accessible language using current up-to-date information. It’s easy to see why this has become a standard text in many film schools. A gilt-edged investment for aspiring and beginning filmmakers and it would not be out of place in the libraries of experienced professionals either.”
-James MacGregor,

“This edition of the book is awesome. I don’t know how you managed it. Such a mass of information so expertly organized and so clearly presented! Amazing.”
-Alfred Guzzetti, Professor, Harvard University

“Anyone who is serious about learning the language and techniques of this art, whether amateur or professional, must have this comprehensive reference.” 
– Bookviews  

“Speaking as a member of the ‘figure it out yourself’ camp, I consider most ‘technical’ reference books to be nothing more than leisure reading. This one is worth its salt. Every page is relevant and fascinating. When I find a chapter that refers to something we’ve done, I realize that every mistake we made was covered, if only we’d thought to read up beforehand.”

“I was thrilled to find your book, which is a gem. No matter what corner of the subject I poked into, looking for cogent explanations, the Handbook passed with flying colors. So please accept my admiration, appreciation and thanks.”
-Pat Jackson, Associate Professor, San Francisco State University; Emmy-winning Supervising Sound Editor
