Filmmaking: Direct Your Movie from Script to Screen Using Proven Hollywood Techniques from Focal Press, is a comprehensive movie production resource for beginners in filmmaking. The book offers insight into the Hollywood production system, and a step-by-step guide to help you adapt these techniques to your own production.

Emmy award-winning director Jason Tomaric provides comprehensive information about movie production, script development, pre-production, post-production and marketing distribution.

Resources include 30 minutes of video tutorials featuring working Hollywood professionals on the included companion website. Industry-standard forms and contracts that can be directly accessed for your production, as well as sample scripts, storyboards, schedules, call sheets, contracts, letters from the producer, camera logs, and press kits are also provided for your reference. A 45-minute video takes you behind the scenes of Tomaric’s first movie and offers you a preview into the extensive resources he used, including 3000 extras, 48 locations, and 650 visual effects, all created in a low-profile production environment.

Emmy, Telly, and CINE award-winning filmmaker Jason J. Tomaric got his start producing an ultra low-budget independent film in Ohio that got picked up for distribution. He is now a Los Angeles-based director and cinematographer who has shot four features, dozens of national television commercials, and numerous documentaries in over 20 countries.
