Guerrilla TV: Low Budget Programme Making
The world of digital television means hundreds of channels, all trying to be different, all looking for product. But the overall international production spend has scarcely increased. Guerrilla TV shows how to make high quality programs at budget levels which were previously thought impossible, and how to make a living doing it.
This book is about empowerment; about making things happen. It is packed full of ideas, inspiration and help. The author, an experienced director/producer/writer, provides an insight into the 'real world' of television program making today. He uses many examples of how different low budget programs have been handled successfully with very professional results.
Guerrilla TV assumes that you are starting with little more than a desk and a telephone, in a world where everything has to be paid for. The mantra running throughout this book is: 'think before you spend'. Do not use money (of which you have very little) as a substitute for thought (which is free). And the other mantra: 'in the end, you don't save money by scrimping!'
