“DETOUR: Hollywood” – The Audiobook

I’m thrilled to announce that my book DETOUR: Hollywood – How To Direct a Microbudget Film (or any film, for that matter) is now available as an audiobook. This book is a lot of things all wrapped up into one easily digestible text, which you can now listen to in the comfort of your own car on your way to work, through your earbuds on a power walk, or wherever a working stereo system with a set of speakers exists.

I will teach you what you really need to know about making a microbudget film, or a film of any budget, for that matter. From the nuts and bolts of directing, to getting your movie made and out into the world, this comprehensive manual will lead you through every step of the process. Dive into such topics as: the Director as the sole defense for the story; the two main ingredients of filmmaking, Subtext and Point of View; avoiding the trap of “style over substance;” and the importance of Theme in your work. Also included are guidelines to beat out a script, a template for creating the perfect Director’s Binder, and a list of dramatic action verbs to help adjust performance.

This is a book for amateur and professional filmmakers alike. It not only includes a detailed behind-the-scenes look at the thrilling, and often harrowing, Pre-Production, Production, Post-Production and Distribution of my first feature, Detour, it also examines the filmmaking techniques behind numerous noteworthy films from the likes of Scorsese, Spielberg, Paul Thomas Anderson, and other master filmmakers.

DETOUR: Hollywood is a crash course in filmmaking that is also available in paperback and Kindle. Choose your format and pick up–or listen to–a copy of the book today. The audiobook is available on Audible, Amazon and iTunes.
