The Complete Film Production Handbook by Eve Light Honthaner is more than just a guide to working in the film industry, it's a necessary resource. Now in its fourth edition, this publication is an honest look at the seemingly glamorous world of film production, and provides those considering a career in the industry an insider's view of it all. Even an old pro will find this a beneficial read and valuable resource, especially for all the forms, contracts, releases, and checklists contained within.

New to the fourth edition is information on low-budget and independent films - including documentaries and shorts - as well as details on commercials and television production. Other new topics include the industry's trend toward going green, travel and shipping regulations, updated information on scheduling, budgeting, deal memos, music clearances and more.

Eve Honthaner has been working in production management within the entertainment industry for many years. Some of her credits include: Titanic, Just Married, In Dreams and Joy Ride. In addition to teaching at USC's Summer Program, she's been an instructor at The International Film & TV Workshops in Rockport, Maine and is the founder of the Los Angeles-based organization Film Industry Network.
