Preparing independent or guerrilla filmmakers for the legal, financial, and organizational questions that can doom a project if unanswered, this guide demystifies issues such as developing a concept, founding a film company, obtaining financing, securing locations, casting, shooting, granting screen credits, distributing, exhibiting, and marketing a film. Updated to include digital marketing and distribution strategies through YouTube or webisodes, it also anticipates the problems generated by a blockbuster hit: sound tracks, merchandizing, and licensing. Six appendices provide sample contracts, copyright forms and circulars, Writer's Guild of America definitions for writing credits, and studio contact information.

Im Mittelpunkt steht die Frage, inwiefern der gegenwärtige Independent-Film nicht zuletzt aufgrund seiner industriellen und textuellen Nähe zum Zentrum der amerikanischen Filmindustrie noch eine Filmpraxis verkörpert, die nicht nur eine widerspenstige Alternative zum Hollywood-Kino darstellt, sondern allgemein den soziokulturellen Status quo herausfordert - insbesondere mittels interventionistischer Artikulationen von race, class und sex/gender.
