5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful book for independent filmmakers 18 juin 2010
Par M. Meyer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I have been an independent producer/director for more than 35 years, and I learned something within the first few pages. This is a wonderful book for independent filmmakers and would-be independent filmmakers. It reflect the film business as it is in the real world. It is truly the "nuts and bolts" - told in a clear and interesting way. I immediately recommended it to a number of my friends who teach at the various film schools around New York City. It is one of the two best books I have ever read on the subject.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Book - Highly Detailed and Extremely Comprehensive 20 mai 2010
Par Matthew Terry - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
When you last got in your car and drove to the store - did you even think about all the things that are working in sync that help your car go? Gas, sparkplugs, catalytic converter, carburetor, computer systems, cooling systems, transmissions, gears, oil, etc. No. Most likely you don't think about that until the car stalls out in the middle of busy traffic and you suddenly have to search through the card catalogue of your mind thinking: "Okay, if the car spews black smoke and the engine won't turn over and the doo-hickey doesn't seem to be connected to the whatsis - then I have to..."

When you watch a film do you realize EVERYTHING that went into the process of making it? If you're like most people you define films by two things: Actor and Director. Maybe if you're a writer like me you add the screenwriter into the mix. But for most people it's: "Oh, that's that Meryl Streep movie!" or "I've heard it's one of Scorsese's best films." You certainly don't think: "Oh, wow, I think I'm going to go see that Jerry Bruckheimer production." We often don't think about everything that a producer does - but, more to the point: The producer does EVERYTHING.

In Maureen Ryan's book, she details EVERYTHING a Producer does from searching out the script, attaching the talent, massaging the budget, scheduling, setting up locations, calling in favors, assisting in shooting (possibly being an extra) to coordinating the post production and working through distribution. See? EVERYTHING.

The book is broken down into chronological chapters detailing the life of a film and she uses conversations with some producers to help make her points. She details every step of the process while also providing the reader with great examples of what, say, a budget should look like - or a contact list - or even a press kit. And you can find even more examples at her website.

"Producer to Producer" is fantastically detailed down to every minutia which is both its greatest strength and its strongest weakness. As I read through it I kept thinking to myself: "God, I've got to do a TON of stuff when I produce my next film (I've produced two micro-budget feature films)." But also thinking: "Thank God she goes into the details she goes into in this book because I hazard to guess that everything is in there." It's a bit of a double-edged sword.

As the book goes on through later chapters, she moves away from the conversations with other film-makers only to return later to that format. I would have liked her to have continued that through-out the book and then add more of what I would refer to as "war stories." If you're going to tell me I need to get the rights to a certain song - find a war story about a producer who didn't and how that ended up. I don't necessarily want to be "scared straight" in this process - but feel those stories would add weight to all the details that are being discussed.

For instance, here's a war story: Over a year ago a close friend of mine, a struggling writer, was ecstatic to see that her script was being made into a short. It was being shot in New York City with a decent sized cast and crew, the website posted behind-the-scenes photos and she loved knowing that within a few months there would be a short film with HER NAME ON IT!! Sadly, in post-production, the Editor wanted to get paid what was promised to him and since no pay was forthcoming, held the film hostage and refused to finish it. Where is the film now? Who knows.

How could the producer have foreseen this issue? How could this have been "nipped in the bud?" Where was the money going to come from to finish? How many people were now affected by this outcome? Could there have been an easier, more palatable solution?

Please, let me be very clear, this is an EXCELLENT book that gives you all the tools (and on-line resources) to get started in the land of producing - I would have just liked there to be a few more stories as to WHY it's important to get the rights to songs. WHY it's important to make sure the budget is in place before you start. WHY it's important to approach SAG (or not). Would some of these stories scare other producers away? Certainly...but they would also give weight to why a Producer has to do all that a Producer has to do. (Note: She includes a quick story about hiring a Production Assistant who had little/no experience who ended up damaging equipment that cost $2,500 to repair. Stories like that.)

All-in-all a great book. If you're thinking about ever producing a film - you can't go wrong having this book by your side.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Essential for Indie Producers 18 juin 2010
Par Robert S. Goald - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
One of the "Indie World's" most highly respected producers, Maureen A. Ryan (Academy Award- winning Man on Wire) offers a tour de force guide to producing low-budget features. Ryan's agenda is comprehensive and unparalleled in a single 400-page book. She starts naturally in development and takes us through obtaining rights, log line, screenplay, proposal, pitch, financing and distribution. Chapters 2 & 3 address the breakdown and scheduling necessary for us to create a budget with many helpful hints to keep your project "lean and without pork". Chapters 4-10 deal with a potpourri of issues including presales, equity investors, casting and hiring the casting director, the production triangle(fast, good, cheap), locations, legal matters, and insurance. From Chapter 11-13, she discusses production and principal photography, the wrap and an amazing look at the technical issues a knowledgeable producer must know to make sense of the complex postproduction process. The remaining five chapters cover audio, music, archival issues, marketing/publicity, film festivals and the proverbial 800 lb gorilla: distribution and sales. There are helpful recap lists at the end of each chapter, wonderful checklists and interviews with experts. Having taught "producing" at the college level I can assure you that this single volume is a mini-course all to itself. If you are an "indie" contemplating a feature, this book is an essential read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent guide to independent film production 23 novembre 2010
Par Indie filmmaker - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Maureen Ryan's Producer to Producer is a clear, concise, and complete guide to independent film production, full of excellent practical advice for both newcomers and experienced producers. I have produced ten independent features, and have often been asked to recommend a book to teach people about what I do. This book will now be my immediate first choice. So many how-to guides to producing get far more details wrong than right-- Producer to Producer is as accurate a guide to the current independent producing process as I have seen to date.

In interest of full disclosure, I have known Maureen Ryan for several years, have worked with her on one film, and have spent a good deal of time with her on the festival circuit, when our films were fortunate enough to screen and to be honored together from Sundance in 2008 to the Academy Awards in 2009. Like Maureen, I also teach producing at a college level, and found many of the lessons that I teach to my students explained fully and quite clearly within these pages. In my classes, I hand out a series of documents to my students-- most importantly, the AICP budgeting form-- many of which Maureen makes available to readers as a free download. For anyone interested in making an independent feature, this book is essential.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This Book Is Free... 24 mai 2010
Par Wendy Pucillo - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Supposedly a good accountant never costs a penny because of the money they save. "Producer to Producer" can make the same claim. There are countless money-saving tips in here, and perhaps a few that will make you spend money you would not have spent upfront but will recoup down the road.

Oddly enough, the book is somewhat of a page-turner - unusual for a "procedural" like this but Ryan spends just the right amount of time on each topic and highlights each with enough examples or interviews that everything is placed into context.

But perhaps the book's greatest value is as motivator - if you are not in pre-production on SOMETHING before you get to the end of the book, you probably do not have a movie in your future. You simply cannot help but start the legwork on your own project as you read.

This book would make a great gift for any director or screenwriter to give to their producing partners. I bought it in book form - I certainly hope a digital version comes out that I can keep on my iPhone so I always have it on location.
