Filmmakers and Financing Reviews


"If you want to make an independent feature you need money, which means you need a business plan, which means you need Levison. Project outlines, industry overview, marketing, sample business plans, distribution, financial planning, loans and partnerships are all included. There is even a nifty CD-ROM supplement that comes with the book."
- Jeffrey M. Freedman, Script Magazine

"A book like this, in my opinion, is an investment in your future as a serious filmmaker. It will be a mainstay on my bookshelf and will be referenced over and over again with each film that I write a business plan for. Worth every penny." - Eric Henninger, Bald Brother's Studio Productions
