Escape From Film School tells the sprightly tale of a young man who makes it in Hollywood without ever leaving film school. When Stuart arrives in California in the Sixties, he is fleeing the draft and he quite literally stumbles into USC's film school. Within a few weeks he is living out of his car and making student films with stolen equipment. Within a few years he is rubbing elbows with a young Mike Ovitz and other characters pulled straight from the pages of Variety. Blessed with a biting wit and a jaundiced eye, Stuart is a keen observer of the machinations, power plays, and absurdities of the movie biz. His account of his own circuitous progress -- and that of his beautiful and ambitious wife, Veronica; his beautiful and ambitious girlfriend, Ginger; and his loyal daughter, Rainbeaux -- also offers an incisive and satirical look at this bizarre, yet fascinating world. Like The Player, it is a dead-on, often hilarious and occasionally poignant tale about survival and redemption in Hollywood.

One L meets You'll Never Eat Lunch in This Town Again In this comic and moving and completely true tale, Film School reveals what life is like at the elite school that trained Hollywood's biggest names. When Midwestern journalist Steve Boman applied to the University of Southern California's vaunted School of Cinematic Arts, the world's oldest and most prestigious film school, he had more than a few strikes against him: His wife was recovering from thyroid cancer. His beloved sister had just died of leukemia. He lost his job. He had three young children. He was in his late 30s.... And he had no experience in filmmaking. As Boman navigates his way through USC's arduous three-year graduate production program, he finds that his films fall flat, he's threatened with being kicked out of the program and he becomes the old guy no one wants to work with. Defeated, he quits and moves back to the Midwest to be with his family. After he is urged by his wife to reapply, he miraculously gets in for a second time...only to have a stroke on the first day of classes. But instead of doing the easy thing - running away again -- Boman throws caution to the wind and embraces the challenge. He slowly becomes a gray-haired Golden Boy at USC with films that sparkle. And then he does the impossible: While still in school, for a class project, he dreams up a television series that CBS catches wind of and develops into THREE RIVERS, a primetime Sunday night show. This story of challenge and triumph--and what it takes to make it in the world's most famous film school--is a must-read for anyone aspiring to become a Hollywood great or anyone just looking for a good story.

"$30 Dollar Film School, Second Edition" is an alternative to spending four years and a hundred-thousand dollars to learn the filmmaking trade. It is influenced by punk rock's "Do-it-Yourself" spirit of just learning the basics and then jumping up on a stage and making a point; and by the essence of the American work ethic. This new edition of the bestselling title includes new, improved, and updated chapters on video and audio editing, plus a companion DVD-Rom loaded with movies, shorts, and trailers from "graduates" of the first edition.
