"It's better to fail in originality, than succeed in imitation."

--- Herman Melville

So that book about making pulp movies? You've earlier asked for suggestions of what should go in there. Definitely try to have a big chapter on key art.

I mean for actual production, I can point people to DV Rebel's guide, Make Your Own Damn Movie, Rebel Without A Crew, but I keep meeting people who are like, "Okay, I have close up photos of each of my actors, now I need to photoshop them together to make the DVD cover," and I'm like, "No, stop." And it would be very nice to have a book I could lend them, and say, "Read this chapter, it will explain what's wrong with that better than I can."
