Make the Cut is a beautiful book!

Make the Cut is a beautiful book. Not only it teaches you the unwritten laws of film industry, it also emphasizes the importance of making short term and long terms plans in order to keep up with the industry without having a nervous breakdown. And it teaches you how to shine!
The book, in some cases, reminded me how important to be specific about one's own ideas and dreams. I think this book is not only for editors or assistant editors but for anybody who would like to have a career in feature film market.
Having said this, when I look at the books about cinematography or art direction, very few of them really mentions about career plans and moving in the industry.


The film industry is highly compartmentalized. It sucks to be indecisive!

It is recommended to anybody who does freelance work.
