Item Description...
Like the Berlin Wall, the seemingly impenetrable colossus of Hollywood, with its enslaving influence on American culture, will someday come crashing down, destroyed by inexpensive technologies, new distribution methods, and a rising tide of independent filmmakers. All of these factors represent unprecedented opportunities for innovative Christian visionaries who are willing to take every thought captive through a presuppositionally biblical approach to making films outside the Hollywood system. In this groundbreaking book, experienced cinematographer, writer, and animator Isaac Botkin prepares Christians for successful Christ-honoring leadership as writers, directors, and producers. Botkin has worked as both a Hollywood outsider and an insider, and is a leading proponent of a new independent film industry. In Outside Hollywood, he smashes the myth of methodological and cultural neutrality and offers a paradigm for developing a family-friendly approach to this hugely important field of cultural influence. Readers will benefit from his insights on the proper training and qualifications and the history and future of the Hollywood industry, as well as the key to courageous script writing, and the responsibilities of professional directing. Several appendices explain ways to get the most out of modern equipment, how to avoid the common mistakes of new filmmakers, and more.

Publishers Description
In Outside Hollywood, experienced cinematographer, writer, and animator Isaac Botkin outlines the duties of Christians who engage in the art of film, calling Christians to exercise rigorous discernment when participating in this powerful communication medium?both as creators and as consumers. Isaac reveals Hollywood's self-consciously anti-God mentality, providing compelling insights into the Marxist agenda of Hollywood past and present. Important, practical filmmaking knowledge is also imparted, including the key to courageous script writing and the responsibilities of professional directing, as Isaac draws from his own experiences as both a Hollywood outsider and insider in professional film and television. Every Christian who enjoys watching movies will find Isaac's insights into Hollywood and modern filmmaking to be an invaluable tool for biblical discernment and family discipleship. Learn how to discern truth and glorify God through film in this important, timely work.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Amazing Resource   Nov 3, 2007
If you are looking for an amusing volume dedicated to glorifying the glitz and glam of Hollywood, or a stodgy tome bent on exploring outdated concepts in the most dreary way possible, then Isaac Botkin's witty, timely, thorough, and astute "Outside Hollywood" might not be the book for you.

This book is a history lesson, a film class, and an apt call to arms rolled into one clever, comprehensible, and sensible package. Botkin is a consummate filmmaker who has the experience (both technological and theological) to encourage Christian filmmakers to take initiative and strive to create a new, God-honoring, Christ-exalting brand of films whose goal is to do more than entertain -he knows, and you'll know, that this is a goal that can only be achieved outside Hollywood.
