Caldwell, founder of Amphion Productions, says she was anxious to tap into Sole’s expertise. “Diana Sole is one of the most goal oriented, usccessful people I know,” she says. “Her chapter in the book is one of the strongest as she gives such practical yet encouraging advice to filmmakers. She gives readers a lot to think about in terms of the challenges and rewards inherent in the craft.”
In her book, Caldwell writes that many filmmakers yearn for the freedom of owning their own production companies. Unfortunately, the creative drive to tell stories on film provides little preparation for the financing, distributing and marketing demands of film entrepreneurship.
