Read Some Excerpts From My New Book

By Ted Hope

I know what you are thinking. You are wondering “why should I go buy a book when I can just download a movie illegally for free?” right?  Well there is a price to pay for everything.  One of the reasons I wrote this book is to advance and preserve the film art and culture that I love — and that other option certainly does not do that! I wrote the book “Hope For Film” (with Anthony Kaufman) because I wanted to share some of the many lessons I have learned producing indie film.

Two recent excerpts give you a bit of a taste as to what the book holds.  You can read about my time with Ang Lee in Cultural Weekly here.  And you can read about my hopes and battles with social media and micro budgets in Salon here.

UPDATE 8/29: Variety ran this excerpt on the changes within Indie Film and where I find inspiration today.

AND: Amazon named us one of their Editors’ Favorite Books Of 2014!

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
