    Anyone can make a short film, right? Just grab some friends and your handheld and you can do it in a weekend or two before being accepted to a slew of film festivals, right? Wrong. Roberta Munroe screened short-film submissions at Sundance for five years and is an award-winning short-film maker in her own right. So she knows a thing or two about how not to make a short film. From the first draft of your script to casting, production, editing, and distribution, this is your one-stop primer for breaking into the business. Featuring interviews with many of today’s most talented writers, producers, and directors, as well as revealing stories and advice (e.g., what to do when the skinhead crack addict next door begins screaming obscenities as soon as you call “action”) from the sets of her own short films, Roberta walks you through the minefield of mistakes that an aspiring filmmaker can make—so that you don’t have to make them yourself.

    Hollywood in the years between 1929 and 1948 was a town of moviemaking empires. The great studios were estates of talent: sprawling, dense, diverse. It was the Golden Age of the Movies, and each studio made its distinctive contribution. But how did the studios, “growing up” in the same time and place, develop so differently? What combinations of talents and temperaments gave them their signature styles? These are the questions Ethan Mordden answers, with breezy erudition and irrepressible enthusiasm, in this fascinating and wonderfully readable book. Mordden illuminates how the style of each studio was primarily dictated by the personality, philosophy, and attitudes of its presiding mogul—and how all these factors affected the work and careers of individual actors, directors, writers, and technicians, and the success of the studio in general.

    The tale of how Sony lost $3 billion in the entertainment business has already become a Hollywood legend. Hit and Run tells the improbable and often hilarious story of how two film packagers best known for spending other people's money went on a deliberate campaign to reinvent themselves as studio executives. With the exception of Batman, Jon Peters and Peter Guber were barely involved with the most successful films they "produced", but this unlikely team got Sony to give them one of the richest deals in Hollywood history. In the fascinating Hit and Run, veteran reporters Nancy Griffin and Kim Masters explain the forces that drove Sony to seek salvation in Hollywood. They chronicle the true story behind Sony's raw deal with Peters and Guber -- from a costly flop and over-spending on talent to expensive firings and Heidi Fleiss. Here on audio for the first time is the extraordinary account of what one studio chairman called "the most public [screwing] in the history of the business."
