Looking to turn your idea into a movie? Read Sell Your Story to Hollywood: Writer's Pocket Guide to the Business of Show Business ASAP!
As someone getting into the business of Hollywood, I found Sell Your Story to Hollywood: Writer's Pocket Guide to the Business of Show Business by Dr. Ken Atchity to be a must-read. Atchity offers encouragement to the writer coupled with a practical roadmap of a shifting & exciting business. There are too many gems in this book to go over in just one review, but highlights include:
· Where to register your idea FOR FREE for protection of your intellectual property.
· A comprehensive list of industry definitions- literally a language unto itself!
· Current, relevant films and books to model. This I loved…every other book I’ve read in this genre only offers material produced prior to 2000.
Sell Your Story to Hollywood shot to the top of my “favorites” tool bar for constant reference.
