I’m Deb Patz, author of film industry books, like Write! Shoot Edit!, Film Production Management 101 and Surviving Production. I've written them to help you bring your dreams to life, working in the film and TV industry whether you're still in school and starting out, or you’re a pro in the industry managing productions.
Myself an industry pro since the 80s, I've made many of my own dreams come true over the years, including working with George Lucas and Steven Spielberg and with the IMAX space team.
I have an MFA in Creative Writing specializing in writing for children and young adults, but you'll have to wait a bit for publication of the stories that were born out that awesome experience.
You're invited to subscribe to my FILM & INK Newsletter (it replaces my FILM & INK Blog) for some F-un, I-nspiration, L-ife, and M-oviemaking tips and tales to educate and inspire you on your cinematic journey.
