Book Review: Think Outside the Box Office by Jon Reiss

Let me save a few of you some time. If you are at all considering creating or producing an independent film, stop reading right now and just go ahead and buy this book. Jon Reiss’s Think Outside the Box Office is not only well-researched but well lived in, as Reiss himself has used many of these techniques with his graffiti documentary Bomb It. It’s an invaluable resource for strategizing what to do with your film once you’ve made it.

It also has plenty of references for further information and a website that is a frequently updated resource for more advanced research.
