In most cases, a few names from the list are included.The book includes an analysis of directing as a realistic career choice, the need to focus one's energies on a particular part of the marketplace, how to know when you are ready to move to New York or Los Angeles, how you can be a working director in your own marketplace, relationships with agents and managers, what agents are looking for, and how to go about approaching agents.An all-important chapter is "Ways into the System", which includes information on support groups, theater groups, Internet connections and much, much more -- while Chapter 6, "Your Film & What to Do with It", addresses the difficulties of marketing a film before and after it's made.K.
