Renowned filmmaker and Television host Del Weston is known for saying it like it is, and with his new book on independent filmmaking, Weston’s tongue remains true to his nature.
The Top 100 Indie Filmmakers In The World Part 1, now available on, showcases the world’s best independent filmmakers in a way never before seen in print or otherwise. Their hopes, their dreams, their work along with links to the people who have molded them and their craft are explored and revealed.
Weston, the creator of the AOF Festival and host of Del Weston On Film, gets feverishly and entertainingly honest in the read-this-before-shooting manual.
“I found that this book was necessary to create. There is a lot of hype out there and it seems that anyone with a camera considers himself or herself to be a filmmaker. I simply don’t agree. I have been making film and television for almost 30 years. While I have spent time in the studio system, most of it has been as an independent filmmaker and producer. That means no studio, no multimillion dollar backers and no easy route to distribution. It just means hard work and careful planning.”
The Top 100 Indie Filmmakers In The World Part 1 features chats with such filmmakers as Stan Harrington, Tyler Williams, Michelle Muldoon, Aaron Kurmey, and Mark Giardino.
“The people represented in the book were culled from both my experiences as a filmmaker and those of the creator and producer of the hugely successful Action on Film International Film Festival. Each person deserves his or her place in this book. They have shown that they have what it takes to wear the badge of an artist and filmmaker.”
The success of Part 1 has paved the way for sequels, says Weston.
“There are future volumes coming. Every year moving forward we will recognize another 100 filmmakers. Our goal is to separate the wheat from the chaf and to introduce to the world some incredible people who happen to sculpt with a microphone, paint with camera lens and serenade with a screenplay. “
