"This is a book about decision-making and organization in film-making. It covers the tasks that are usually thought of as belonging to the producer, the production manager, their assistants, and the assistant directors. This book will also be very useful for directors. My purpose in writing this book is to help you save time, money, and aggravation when you make your next film."
