“So this book is meant to extend me beyond my physical reach because I’ve spent most of the past four, five years if not the past decade training young film-makers on how to equip themselves, position themselves, and grow themselves in a kind of economy when you find little or no grants or little or no funds for filmmakers”.

“And I’ve been physically limited as to where I could but this book extends my information, my knowledge, the education I intend to impact these people with, into a literature where they can now engage with on their own level and get inspired and informed to move ahead and do the things they need to do.
Because in this book, we are not only teaching filmmakers how to make/produce film but also informing film lovers and film enthusiasts about the industry that creates these things they have come to love” – Chris Odeh added.
