Filmmaking Handbooks

anyone got some good recommendations on books for low budget filmmaking?

i own (and read): Rebel Without a Crew (RR), 30$ Filmschool (MD) & How to shoot a feauture film for under $10.000 (and not go to jail) (BS)

anybody ells know some good ones?


Film directing shot by shot by F katz is pretty nice.

Anyway, do you guys know about some oldschool books about film effects? No CGI or software editing stuff, but stuff about how to do some tricks only then old books about this?

Also would like to have a book about stop motion. Can someone recommend me some?

I just ordered Shoot out by Peter Bart… is it any good?
