A solid and compact book about screenplay writing
Rodney Cannon has delivered a very interesting book, with a effective narration from Jonh Alan. The content of the book itself is a really down to earth aproach on writing a screenplay, focusing not only on doing a low budget movie, but also how to do it with quality. Some of it's tips maybe used in other areas, like in public speaking, because some of the concepts are really usefull in many situations.

Interesting and Technical
🎬 This is an interesting book with tidbits and tips about how to keep the costs of moviemaking minimal. The ongoing, repeating tip that I picked up (no less than 5 times was mentioned :-) ) was that the author maintained that it was expensive to feed the crew, extras, actors and all.
Another tip was to keep the cast to a minimum, even if you are working with friends who don't require salary… They still need to be fed.
John Alan Martinson Jr. was a good narrator, though when asking questions his presentation was a bit whiny. Overall a 3.5 – 4 star performance
I'm always interested in reading "how to" books about movies and writing. I will never write a screenplay or write a book, but it is interesting to me.
