Incredible Review of Naked Filmmaking from UK Reader!
This is the kind of reader response that authors dream of and kill for!
I was looking for the DVD of an obscure British movie on the Amazon UK site and, as an afterthought, I typed in “Naked Filmmaking” to see how my book looked on the British site. What first caught my eye was that it had 2 reviews. This is for the first edition of Naked Filmmaking, which has 19 reviews.
I scrolled down to discover that these were both reviews written on Amazon UK by Amazon UK customers. I’d never read these before.
This one was written 0ne-and-a-half years ago by “Mr. M.R. Wall.” I don’t know who this is, but I was so blown away by his words that I shamelessly could not help but reprint them here on the site for other readers and followers.

After buying and reading scores of books on low budget filmmaking, I was growing quite disheartened at the amount of information that would fill the pages that just wasn’t relevant to me. Then I stumbled across this book by mistake by reading that the author was the director of Dog Soldiers, and then realising that HIS Dog Soldiers was about New York Dog Walkers and NOT Werewolves in the Scottish Highlands, I carried on reading. This book is by far, THE BEST BOOK I have EVER read about low budget filmmaking, especially for those who write, produce and film their own projects. His personal accounts are SO enlightening, the recommendations of materials and equipment are spot-on and his advice just makes plain-perfect-sense.
Ignore all the other books out there about low-budget filmmaking if it’s just YOU who is responsible for making your film, Mike Carroll shows you how to do it.
Thank you, Mr. M.R. Wall.
