"Raindance Producers' Lab, Second Edition is truly a handbook for the modern filmmaker. It is incredibly comprehensive, a soup to nuts guide on making a low budget film. AND, as an added bonus, it will keep you up-to-date on the latest social media, digital, and self-distribution options for your film!" - Stacey Parks, Founder, www.FilmSpecific.com; Author, The Insider's Guide to Independent Film Distribution (Focal Press, 2012) "Always clever, never dull, sometimes funny, often provocative, truly independent, and a treasure to all eager aspiring filmmakers." - Ate de Jong, Director, Drop Dead Fred and Het Bombardement; Producer, The Discovery of Heaven "Raindance Film Festival has arrived, survived and thrived for 21 years because its founder (and this book's author) is a scrappy, charismatic, street-savvy guy whose vocabulary does not include the word 'can't.' This is the attitude he promotes in his book loaded with hundreds of hard earned lessons from every nook and cranny of filmmaking's development, production, and distribution processes. To get an indie film made and distributed, you have to know a lot of tricks. Elliot knows them all, and then some. Kudos to him for his generosity in sharing them." - Michael Wiese, Filmmaker & Publisher; Author, Onward & Upward: Reflections of a Joyful Life of a Joyful Life
