Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) December 7, 2005
A surprising 80% of film students surveyed in Hollywood North had film budgets, costs and business plans on their minds, warning of a new breed of film school graduate. Budgets and costs, previously the realm of the hated “Blue Suits”, is now becoming the interest of film students wanting to legitimize their projects.
New digital equipment has created opportunity for this generation of film school students like never before. At a time when the Hollywood styled feature films have few openings and thousands of graduates to fill them, film students have turned to digital technology and entrepreneurial ventures to make their visions.
Walk The Talk Productions has just released an instant download Ebook, Walk The Talk: a 173 page practical guide for the new entrepreneurial filmmaker. It gives real-life examples from a 20 year insider on film budgets and the dreaded reporting of costs to your investors. There is lots of practice defending challenges to your budgets and costs, enhancing your credibility as a professional in the eyes of prospective investors and financiers.
Michael Glick, long time Producer and former VP Production at MGM, says of the book, “I love it! I am going to use parts of the book at the American Film Institute in my role as a Mentor!”
