In 25 years, Lloyd Kaufman has built up Troma Studios into a legendary production studio, responsible for such camp cult classics as The Toxic Avenger and Class of Nuke Em High. Now, Kaufman takes his independent studio style of filmmaking and puts it in the reader's hands, showing them how to: develop and write a kckout screenplay; raise funds for production; find locations and cast actors, crew, equipment, permits and music rights; cheap but incredible special effects; and make a bad actor act so badly, they're good.
Lloyd Kaufman is one of the very few genuine auteur filmmakers. He has written, produced and/or directed more than twenty five films including The Toxic Avenger, Sgt Kabukiman NYPD, Terror Firmer and Tromeo and Juliet. He is President of world famous Troma Entertainment, the oldest and, arguably, longest running truly independent film studio in history. This is his second book.
