Managing the Film Production

Tom Garrett, a professor at the University of Tampa, an experienced professional in film production and distribution, is very excited about finding a book that deals with a film production topic that just isn’t available anywhere else – Directing the Money. Here’s what he has to say about it:

 “John Gaskin is film professional that instills trust and enthusiasm and calls it as it is! From his years of experience as a production auditor /accountant/ production executive ( all my higher powers) with his expertise in budgeting, cost reporting, dealing with bond companies, managing contracts of every description, working with producers(and being one himself), production managers and studio executives ensure a production is produced on time and on budget. He brings his vast cross-over disciplinary skills and experience to an nuts and bolts result in his book “Walk The Talk”, which I use in my producing course at University of Tampa. His presentations and workshops are just not the how to’s… but the why’s . He shares all the interpersonal goings on with the bottom line- the result. And the money involved to get that result. I am grateful to have discovered “Walk the Talk” and John Gaskin and look forward always to introduce John’s his book and information that I have found there, and no where else.”
