“They’re the ones whose names are on the Best Picture statue, but it’s never been easy to define the role of the producer – even less when functioning on an independent level. Instant Filmmaker gets to the heart of that definition and then provides clear-cut guidance, insight, and tools that anyone with a love of film and a dream project would need to make it a reality.”
