Filmmaking Confidential

Filmmaking Confidential


 Since 1998, Steve Balderson has made 17 feature films. Looking back on these years of productivity, Steve has crafted a volume of invaluable perspective, tips, how-tos and general philosophy about making independent films, no matter the budget, no matter the location.Balderson worries little about who he will offend. Instead, he focuses his attention on what it takes to be a productive filmmaker in an industry that is risk averse and locked in a world where rigid process seems more important than creativity. This Kansas-born outsider has garnered awards, critical acclaim, and rave reviews globally, including one from Roger Ebert, who called him "Brilliant." His film "Casserole Club" is in the U.S. Library of Congress permanent collection; "Firecracker" won numerous accolades in film festivals around the globe. And it goes on and on...These kudos notwithstanding, the real potency of this book is how Balderson's beliefs about making films and working with people - whether they be Oscar winning actors and Grammy winning musicians, or the waitress "extra" in the restaurant - have been the fuel for this remarkable collection of successful motion pictures. Read it, and then go make your film!
