Living in Los Angeles and being involved in the film industry, I saw this book, glanced through it and immediately bought it. All I ever wanted to know about the different career opportunities available in the film industry are named and defined with details such as employment and advancement prospects, training needed, salaries and so on. As I had been considering changing careers within the industry, I found this book to be the exact one necessary to define what other related employment opportunities were available to me. No other such book was on the shelves! Finally a concise, succinct albeit encyclopedia-like book/guide is here to delineate all the jobs I ever wanted to consider in the highly competitive world of film. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in working in this exciting, no-two-days-alike world.
