Bankroll is the book that all filmmakers have been waiting for.

It gives you the precise and practical details of how the author has raised over $20 million for a number of independent feature films. Now – there are no excuses. Go bankroll your film!
What People Say
“This may be the only book you’ll ever need to read about independent filmmaking. Malloy’s energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge leap off the page. If this doesn’t motivate and inspire you, nothing will!”
— Stephanie Austin, producer, Terminator 2, True Lies, Behind Enemy Lines
“The simplest, most straightforward instructions I’ve ever read about how to finance your own film. This isn’t an exposé of how bigwig studio moguls do it; it’s a step-by-step guide to how the scrappy, savvy, do-it-yourselfers do it.”
— Chad Gervich, TV writer/producer and author, Small Screen, Big Picture: A Writer’s Guide to the TV Business
“A superb approach to independent financing... an excelling roadmap for the first-time filmmaker.”
—Dov S-S Simens, author, From Reel to Deal; Dean, www.WebFilmSchool.com
“Tom Malloy’s approach is the real deal and combines pragmatism with a bit of motivational pep talk and spirituality. The book isn’t written by a lawyer or ex-agent or trust-fund-gilded producer who happens to be blessed with personal wealth and endless family contacts in high places. Since Tom is a writer, actor, producer, and filmmaker his advice comes from a unique perspective and should be mandatory reading for aspiring film producers.”
— Michael Roban, Executive Producer, Secretary, Penelope, Love in the Time of Cholera
