About the Book:

When it comes to producing, no one speaks with more authority than Lloyd Kaufman, founder of the longest-running independent film studio, Troma Entertainment. This is the 2nd volume in his hilarious, how-to series for hard-working self-starters and hard-laughing, cheeky filmmakers.

In Produce Your Own Damn Movie he reveals the best ways to seek out investors, scout locations, hire crew and cast talent, navigate legalities, and stay within your budget. Featuring tips from some of the finest producers in the business (Mark Damon, James Gunn, Mark Harris, Tery Jones, Brad Kevoy, Stepehn Paul, and more!), this book gives you practical tools for getting a movie shoot started, keeping it afloat and seeing it through to the end. Candid interviews, tips, tricks, and tidbits scattered throughout the book illustrate the many techniques you can employ to produce your own damn movie — Lloyd Kaufman shows you how it's really done.

Produce Your Own Damn Movie reveals the secrets of producing a low-budget independent film. Covering everything about production from the initial movie idea, all the way through pre-production and up to the first day of principal photography (including budgeting concerns to production-damaging acts of God), you'll get the inside track to producing your own damn movie. This book will be your step-by-step guide on the journey to:

   • Maximize production values with a minimal budget
   • Scout locations
   • Different producing models
   • Pre-selling your movie

Hysterical in tone, you won't be able to put Produce Your Own Damn Movie down.

What people say:

"Kaufman is a true original, a filmmaker who has used the freedom of low budgets and disreputable genres to express subversive political views and provide gobs of gore and gratuitous nudity. It is hard to think of another book that is simultaneously so honest and so inspiring; the fact that it is also smart, hilarious and informative makes Produce Your Own Damn Movie! a real treasure." — American Cinematographer Magazine

"Founder of Troma Entertainment, the longest-running entertainment studio, Kaufman knows what he's talking about when it comes to producing your own indie movie. With candid interviews featuring some of the best producers working in the field, Kaufman shares funny, helpful tips on how to get your movie made." — Independent Magazine

"[Kaufman is] humorous, smart, observant, educated and at times completely insane. All the workings of a long-time producer. Lloyd goes over financials, selling films, making films cheaply and reusing scenes as much as you can get away with. Now that's talent!" —
