HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - March 22, 2018 - PRLog -- Multi Emmy-Award winning filmmaker Shane Stanley, a lifelong entertainment industry insider, has worked in every aspect of the film industry, covering a multitude of movies, television shows, and other projects. In his valuable new book, WHAT YOU DON'T LEARN IN FILM SCHOOL: A COMPLETE GUIDE TO INDEPENDENT FILMMAKING, Stanley takes a candid look at the film business and offers ambitious young filmmakers important information on how to navigate every aspect of making movies, from initial pitch to distributing a finished product. The book (http://www.whatyoudontlearninfilmschool.com)  "is written for anyone who hopes to have a career in the industry at any position, but (is) geared for (the) total filmmaker," Stanley says.

Producer Neal H. Moritz ("Fast & Furious," "S.W.A.T.," "21 and 22 Jump Street"), says that WHAT YOU DON'T LEARN IN FILM SCHOOL "pulls no punches. It's one of the most insightful and accurate books ever written on the subject, a master class bridging the gap between school and real-life experience that will save you years of heartache. A must-read for anyone interested in pursuing a career in film."

Jane Seymour, two-time Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner, actress, producer and founder of the Open Hearts Foundation, declares that Stanley's "step-by-step guide is a must-read for anyone hoping to break into the world of independent cinema, along with many useful tips for those who desire to work within a studio or network system."

Jeff Sagansky, former president of Sony Entertainment and CBS Entertainment, notes that "Shane Stanley takes you to a film school that only years of practical experience can teach. He covers both the business of independent filmmaking as well as the hard-earned secrets of a successful production. A must-read for anyone who wants to produce."

A lifelong veteran of the film world, Stanley has directed and produced hundreds of film and television projects, including the 2006 No. 1 Box Office hit "Gridiron Gang," starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. His clearly-written guide to navigating the shoals of independent filmmaking comes from his hands-on experience, covering such topics as choosing what material to produce, raising independent capital, hiring a production crew and selecting the right cast.

WHAT YOU DON'T LEARN IN FILM SCHOOL is an essential book written by someone who clearly understands the independent film business from the inside.
