The Internet offers a number of websites where you can learn about the business of making movies. From places to obtain information about funding and equipment, to bios on actors and free screenplays. In an effort to bring that large world into focus, I offer this listing of sites which I have found to be both useful and educational.
If you have a website, and want your page listed here, simply e-mail us.
