“Highly informative and creatively sophisticated, this is an important book

that will appeal to budding filmmakers from all over the world.”

Archie Tait, Film producer


“I have never read anything on filmmaking like it before. It’s personable, clear

and a real page turner. The best, most practical material I’ve ever seen on the subject matter, written in modern and clear prose.”

Anthony Alleyne, Filmmaker, Course leader at Met Film School, London



I’ve read your book which is fun, entertaining and very useful. I can, without hesitation recommend it to my students. It gives them all the basics they need.


Marcello Racana Director, Head of Stockholm Film School, Sweden


IT’S BRILLIANT, and I rarely say that about things but I thoroughly enjoyed it! Although it did make me slightly upset that I spent two years and countless amounts of money to get through film school when you made it tremendously simple in 100+ pages. A superb piece of work!”

Tiarnan O’Sullivan, Writer / Director
