What This Book Is All About!
Tricks of the Trade (Or as I like to call it; T.O.T.S.)
There are many famous quotes in the movie business. (It's what we do!) One comes quickly to mind. "There... More > are ten ways to do a job!” (And yet, they all seem to work.)
It’s quite true. So, that’s one reason for this book. The other reasons, passing it along, paying it forward, helping one another. (You get the picture)
Here's the deal, if you use just one of these tried and true methods properly, you'll look good. If you look good, (To the bosses) you'll be asked back. (That’s a no-brainer)
Hopefully, it will help you and others for years to come.
