This page is mostly for filmmakers who are sad and depressed because their movie is so average that nobody will watch it.

Stop crying and pay attention.ย  What is written here will save your career (at least until tomorrow morning.)ย  However there is no cure for a bad producer – there may be no help for you!

Not only does it highlight what a pioneer he was when it came to the technical side of film making but it is a fascinating resource for aspiring directors or viewers interested in the craft of film.
