The entries provide commentary on approaches to film finance and distribution, definitions of production and post-production technical terms, definitions of unique film-industry practices and procedures in a variety of areas, and an extensive cross-referencing of terms. Cones offers definitions and advice.

"This dictionary's harrowing journey through the depths of studio 'creative accounting' is both revealing and frightening -- a must read for all filmmakers". -- Richard F. Brophy, producer
