Part I - Chapter 1: Getting Started gives an overview of the film industry, with essential background information, legal know-how, and commercial advice on how to prepare yourself and your project in the best way to attract finance. This is followed by case studies and interviews with some leading producers and directors.

Chapter 3: Production Financing describes in depth all the various aspects of independent production financ- ing, including Soft Money, Equity, Deferments, Pre-Sales, Gap, Sales Advances, Negative Pick-ups, EIS and Venture Capital, Sponsorship and Product Placement. It also illustrates the roles of the various other companies who are integral to the financing process, including Sales Companies, Distributors, Discounting Banks, and Completion Guarantors.

Chapter 4: The Internet explores how tools, networks and services on the web collectively offer the independent filmmaker great power for financing, marketing and distributing their films, and some of the ideology which underpins these developments.
