Final Cut Pro Workflows: The Independent Studio Handbook
Amazing Find: Great for any workflow -FCP or not
This book should be marketed differently. I (hesitantly) picked it up expecting a very software specific how to book and what I got was a guide to creating and maintaining a sucessful post production firm. I am new to the production world; only just recently opening a boutique production company here in Chicago. For a while I struggled with Final Cut Pro and maintaining productive ...
A Woman of Independent Means

"A Woman of Independent Means" by Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey is an amazing piece of fiction.

As I recall, no response to any of the letters is ever provided, but the story still manages to flow eloquently and with extraordinary clarity, ...

It is easy to understand, comprehensive enough for most small businesses, and organized ...
Bjarturing bread for independence
"Independence" is a word thrown around a lot, especially here in America where we think we have some kind of freehold on it. For much of its history, Iceland was a desperately poor land of sheep farmers and fishermen with a very small class of large landowners and merchants (often Danish) who kept the others in thrall. Halldor Laxness lived and wrote in the times when this age-old society was ...

Deliverables- what you provide to a distributor so they can do their job of marketing your movie- begin at the screenwriting stage. ...
Empowered Judaism: What Independent Minyanim Can Teach Us about Building Vibrant Jewish Communities
Jewish Lights Pub
Information that can help vigorate Judaism
Probably when the first synagogue was established, which may have occurred sometime between 200 BCE and 70 CE, a sizable percentage of Jews who attended the services objected to something they saw or heard. This is human nature. Whenever a large group is involved in something, many will dislike what they see and hear. Thus, for example, the president of the United States is considered to be well ...
Queen Eleanor: Independent Spirit of the Medieval World
Polly Schoyer Brooks
A quick, delightful read about a fascinating monarch
I recently bought this book for a paper I had to do for school. I had read Polly Schoyer Brooks' book about Joan of Arc last year, and had enjoyed it, so I was hapy to find one on Eleanor of Aqutaine. This book was clear and easy to understand, but explained the fascinating life of Eleanor in detail. Each chapter highlighted a different section of her life, from her childhood in Aqutaine, to her ...

Calling all inventors
The Independent Inventor's Handbook, by Foreman and Welytok, is very well written.
