“Collaboration and dialogue are also the foundation for everything Jon has outlined in precise detail in this book. They should be every filmmaker’s mantra for (the) days (months and years) ahead. It is not a question of “just doing it”. . . Eat up every morsel Reiss provides. Internalize it and make it your second skin.”

“Reiss is a delicious combination of born teacher, compulsive anti-authoritarian and thorough scholar, whose nature is to measure, analyze and, most importantly, share his discoveries. Think Outside the Box Office is absolutely required reading for everyone making any kind of media with hopes to meaningfully connect with an audience.”
