Hello, everyone. I am the co-author of The Documentary Film Makers Handbook, a new book in The Guerilla Film Makers Handbook series. Just wanted to tell everyone that after two years in the making, the book is now available for purchase at Amazon, Borders, Barnes and Noble and most other bookstores.

We interviewed over 110 documentary industry professionals from every field (DP, editor, distributor, funder, broadcaster, etc.) and asked them the questions that you would NEED to know the answers to in order to make your doc. In these interviews, we also spoke to 24 working filmmakers who discuss their experiences making their films. Some of the films chronicled are MARCH OF THE PENGUINS, CONTROL ROOM, MAD HOT BALLROOM, DOGTOWN & Z-BOYS, WHY WE FIGHT?, LA SIERRA, MY DATE WITH DREW and TREMBLING BEFORE G-D.

There is also a Global Perspective chapter where you can get an insight into filmmaking, funding and distribution around the world, which given today's climate is how many docs get made.

Here is the Amazon link to the book which is bright orange! I hope you enjoy it and it is helpful.
