New Book, Reviews and other stuff

June 25, 2009

Where have I been? Too much work not enough hours in the day. I am consulting on a few films, booking the Fall tour, promoting my new book, teaching a 3 week workshop, and trying to find time to work on my own stuff. Does anyone out there know anything about cloning? I could use a little help here.

I am thinking about becoming a Republican and running for office. No, I am not in to it to help people I am just in the mood for an affair. They seem to have that market cornered.

I’m going to start posting some tips again on the site from my book and here is the first one…

When it comes to budgeting remember, Everything is Negotiable! Don’t pay full price for anything!
– – from The Angry Filmmaker Survival Guide

So here’s the deal, my book, The Angry Filmmaker Survival Guide: Making the Extreme No Budget Film is finally here. How good is it you ask?

“Finally, a film resource that tells it like it is! As a film festival director, I watch hundreds (if not thousands) of films a year — some good, many flawed. I wish I could afford to send copies of “Survival Guide: Part 1” to every director I encounter, to help them identify and correct potential issues before they roll the camera.”

Jon Gann, Director, DC Shorts Film Festival

Or this…

“YOU’VE REVEALED THE MAGICIAN’S SECRETS! NOW, ANYONE WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE A FILM OR EDIT THE SOUND. DAMN YOU BAKER, DAMN YOU I SAY!”

Jim LeBrecht
Berkeley Sound Artists

Or…

Hurray! This book is Jiminy Cricket on your shoulder, telling you what you need to do. And what you need to do is listen to Kelley Baker and heed his advice. Pinocchio did. Well, in the Disney version he did. In the original Italian, he kills the cricket with a hammer. Don’t do that. Listen to Kelley Baker, and this book will keep you out of more trouble than Jiminy Cricket.
