FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -­‐ Los Angeles, CA – January 19, 2015 – After an unprecedented run as a self-published book, Adam Leipzig’s Inside Track for Independent Filmmakers: Get Your Move Made, Get Your Movie Seen is now available with updated information, from Bedford/St. Martin’s, an imprint of Macmillan.

Aspiring and early-stage filmmakers will discover inside secrets, step-by-step instructions, and time saving shortcuts that will allow them to approach financiers, actors, agents and distributors like a savvy professional.

“My goal was to provide a simple roadmap for getting your movie made, seen and distributed,” said Leipzig, CEO of Entertainment Media Partners, and the former President of National Geographic Films. “It’s not easy to get your movie made, and more than 90% of those that do get made never get seen. Those are daunting numbers, but this book will help improve your odds of success.”

In straightforward language, Inside Track for Independent Filmmakers tells filmmakers exactly what they need to do to get great casting, work the festival circuit like a pro, make their films highly attractive to distributors and how to pitch their project to financiers. This new volume also includes a foreword by renowned indie film guru Ted Hope, who has produced such iconic indie films as American Splendor, 21 Grams, The Tao of Steve and The Brothers McMullen.
