Christine Vachon, David Edelstein.

Christine Vachon, David Edelstein. Complete with behind-the-scenes diary entries from the set of Vachon's best-known fillms, Shooting to Kill offers all the satisfaction of an intimate memoir from the frontlines of independent filmmakins, from one of its most successful agent provocateurs - and survivors.

Shooting to Kill book.

This book tells more of Christine Vachon's experiences as an independent film producer, along with "A Killer Life. Everyone has something of value to offer, of course, but Shooting to Kill spends a lot of time stating the obvious. Both books are excellent, and cover different times in her career before "Carol," which I consider her greatest film. It is crisply written, thanks to r David Edelstein. Otherwise, if you're utterly clueless and lacking in the ability to make logical decisions, this might be helpful.

Christine Vachon has emerged over the last ten years as one of the key leaders of the New York independent film movement. She lives in New York City, where she heads her own company, Killer Films. For this guided tour through the world of low-budget independent filmmaking, Vachon teamed with Slate film critic Edelstein to "tell you what producers do and how you can do it to.

Vachon is also the author of two books, A Killer Life: How an Independent Film Producer Survives Deals and Disasters in Hollywood and Beyond (2006), and Shooting to Kill: How an Independent Producer Blasts Through the Barriers to Make Movies That Matter (1998).

Shooting to Kill by Christine Vachon Who doesn't want to hear it firsthand from one of the premiere indie producers of all time? Maybe it's time I wrote a book (and stopped wasting time pinning!

Vachon wants to make movies that matter. She wants to and does. The title of her book (written with David Edelstein) is Shooting to Kill: How an Independent Producer Blasts Through the Barriers to Make Movies That Matter

Vachon wants to make movies that matter. The title of her book (written with David Edelstein) is Shooting to Kill: How an Independent Producer Blasts Through the Barriers to Make Movies That Matter. She is no stranger to risk, controversy, and experimentation. The 40 or so films already bearing her name attest to that. Her work often seeps into the crevices between independent and commercial filmmaking. Some writers have called her the "Queen of the New Queer Cinema"; others associate her name with politically committed filmmaking.

A look at the making of "Velvet Goldmine" through the eyes of its creator, the independent film-maker Christine Vachon. Starring Ewan McGregor, Christian Bale, Jonathon Rees Meyers and Toni Collette, the film is a camp, retro-kitsch ride through the origins of glam rock in 1970s London.
  • This book tells more of Christine Vachon's experiences as an independent film producer, along with "A Killer Life." Both books are excellent, and cover different times in her career before "Carol," which I consider her greatest film. Very enjoyable to read!

  • Great follow up to "Killer Life." its an inside look at how to make great cinema through the eyes of one of the best independent producers in the business today. even with her reputation and the great filmmakers she works with, its a struggle to get every movie made and the fact that she can do it is an inspiration for all who want to get into this business.

  • amazingly awesome book for any filmmaker or aspiring indie producer. i learned more from Vachon's book than i did in my film school's crappy media management class (for producers), although it is a bit dated since it was released in the 90s and only refers to film and no digital video filmmaking. if you get this book, you should also get her second called A Killer Life, also amazing, which was written in the 2000s so more up to date.

  • Great book, a little dated (from the days of using film rather than digital), but the tactics are still completely relevant and very cleverly wirtten. Very engaging and interesting.

  • Christine Vachon gives us a precious insight into the way an independent producer thinks and works. Very practical and to the point, with specific examples and multiple anecdotes from her projects. I wish she would make an updated version or a follow-up, reflecting the development in indie film and her own career since the writing of this book.

  • This book reminds me of a memoir written by a teenager with limited life experience. I have trouble getting industry tips from average performers in the entertainment business. Everyone has something of value to offer, of course, but Shooting to Kill spends a lot of time stating the obvious. It is crisply written, thanks to Co-Author/Ghostwriter David Edelstein. Otherwise, if you're utterly clueless and lacking in the ability to make logical decisions, this might be helpful. Pretty good step-by step line-item budgeting (that you can get from "Movie Maker" anyway), this is sort of a middle-guy to the middle-guys information primer. I've read worse. And I've certainly read better.

  • Perfect thanks

  • This book provides great insight into a true moviemaking maverick, Christine Vachon, as well as what it takes to make great movies outside of the "system"! It's also as entertaining as it is informative.
