About the Book:

Have you always wanted to direct a movie, but don't know how to start? In Direct Your Own Damn Movie!, renegade film director Lloyd Kaufman, the writer/producer/director of such cult-classic independent films as The Toxic Avenger, reveals 40 years worth of maverick cinematic know-how! This is the 1st volume in his hilarious, how-to series for hard-working self-starters and hard-laughing, cheeky filmmakers.

What do directors even do, anyway? There's more to film directing than a cool-looking chair. Direct Your Own Damn Movie! is the Independent Film Directing Bible that will be your step-by-step roadmap on the journey through: scriptwriting; pre-production; casting; managing your set post-production; distribution; and much, much more.

Want to know how to get your first film directing job? There is no better way to become a director than by following the instruction and wisdom of an actual successful director, not someone who just talks about it.

Direct Your Own Damn Movie! features expert advice from a host of luminaries on mistakes and disasters from their early film directing careers:

Eli Roth (Grindhouse, Hostel)
Jenna Fischer (LolliLove)
Stan Lee (co-writer Spider-Man, Fantastic Four
Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator)
James Gunn (Dawn of the Dead, Slither)
…and many more!
