“Get a good idea and stay with it. Dog it, and work it until it’s done and done right.” —Walt Disney
Summer is quickly winding down in many parts of the country. That means more indoors time for watching movies and reading good books.
Leaders in the independent film industry are proving that big budgets and big production crews do not necessarily mean big block buster hits. There have been notable films that many people do not realize were made by the independents. A few of them are:
- In the Company of Man
- Lost in Translation
- Stranger inParadise
- The Passion of Christ

Being a successful independent filmmaker (and independent publisher) means more than just a great story line. Making wise business decisions and having a budget-wise, well thought out business plan, in place, is important too. Solid strategies from concept to pre and post production, marketing and financing will result in a good final product. There are lots of helpful books on the market that can answer your questions, provide you with tips and give you some of the guidance you will need with your independent filmmaking or publishing plans.
Not ready to start your own independent publishing or film project yet? Pick up a new book from an Indie Bound bookstore near you.
