Never Sleep With the Director and 50 Other Ridiculous Film Rules
This book is meant for movie lovers, silver screen starlets and the people who get to yell ‘cut’ and ‘action’ on set. It contains 51 movie-related rules, their history and quotes by industry leaders, Hollywood big shots, indie directors and a whole list of actors and actresses.
The rules range from helpful tips for the editors – “Kill Your Darlings” – to words of wisdom aimed at directors – “Never work with animals or children.” From horror movie clichés – “Never pick up the phone” – to the ridiculous rules of the old Hollywood Production Code – “No picture shall be produced which will lower the moral standards of those who see it” – right down to sound advice for any struggling actor or actress – “Never Sleep with the Director.”
