Film School Confidential by Karin Kelly
Film School Confidential by Karin Kelly
5.0 out of 5 stars Just buy it!, Oct. 28 2002
If you consider going to film school, this book can save you a lot of head-aches. It helped me a lot in narrowing down my cirle, and it damn sure gave me new perspectives on how to look, and what to look for, and how to approach my search for the right place. The best thing is that it doesn't only give you sheer facts and dry data -- it will also include personal info that schools will never tell you, because A) they don't want you to know; B) it is not related to education, therefore they don't think it is important (I know now, as a senior in college, how important every detail can be -- trust me, that's all there is to it: details). The book also will try to open your eyes to the fact… Read more
The Screenwriter's Bible: A Complete Guide to Writ&hellip by J.K.Rowling

Nothing reflects the content better hence, than the title itself. It's a Bible. You can turn to the Bible for basic advice and support. But when you grow up, you… Read more

Have A Nice Day! by Mick Foley
5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST..., March 14 2002
No joke! You just gotta have this. I have never laughed so much at any book. I always thought autobiographies [were bad]. I didn't really want to read this either. But I did, and I praise myself for doing it. I also praise Mick Foley for writing it. It was a tremendous effort (lots of pages with letters dominating on them -- it's not a picture-portfolio, as opposed to books of other wretlers), but worth every minute of it. Foley is honest. Very honest. And he talks about everything in his life in an honest manner. And what makes it all funny is that he is a loser. One of the "nice" guys... you know, who always stays behind because he is... well... nice. And that's exactly what makes him so… Read more
