I read this book as part of my research before making the decision to move to LA to pursue my dream career of working in tv/film.

The author does a good job of giving the reader an overview of behind the scenes production positions. I really liked being able to see the the different paperwork forms that can be used.

I arrived in LA on August 1, 2011, and I landed my first on set indie feature film PA gig in late August 2011. Thanks to this book, I felt somewhat prepared for the experience.

Great resource! If your goal is to become a PM or you just want to be in the know as coordinator, this is the book for you! Very detailed and easy to read. Gives great scenarios (many of which I've already run into). This is my go-to PM bible.

Recommends it for: Production managers, producers
Pretty much a guide to making a movie without all the pesky tutorials on actually shooting it. Logistics are this book's bread and butter and Patz presents the whole shebang very well.
