Something interesting & strange is happening and I need your help.

Naked Filmmaking: How To Make A Feature-Length Film – Without A Crew – For $10,000 $6,000 Or Less – Revised & Expanded For DSLR Filmmakers has been out since March of 2013. (The first edition came out in March 2010.) The sales have been good. But for the past several months the sales in the UK have varied between 25% and 40% of the overall purchases.

Taking into consideration that the population of the US is 313 million (2012) and the population of the UK is 63 million (2012), 1/5th or 20% the number of people in the States, this is a wildly disproportionate number.

(Many thanks for this, by the way — I love getting royalty checks in Pounds!)

So I’m asking for your help.

Who in the United Kingdom is buying Naked Filmmaking?

In fact, to anyone and everyone, both inside and outside of the US, who is purchasing the book — I’d like to hear from you.

Please send me an e-mail.

Tell me who you are.

How you found out about the book.

If the book is helpful to you.

If it’s giving you food for thought of an alternative way (as opposed to the traditional crew method) of making a movie.

And if you’ve got the time, send me a photo of you holding the book, and with your camera or at your computer where you edit.

I’d very genuinely like to hear from you.

    Yesterday I received your book NAKED FILMMAKING, which I ordered from Amazon Germany. I am totally new to filmmaking, learning from scratch. Taking photos with a reflex camera in the eighties is a different world.

    Your knowlegde, your wisdom and your experience is on the best way to tear me with enthusiam into the business. It was 2:45 a.m. when I decided to go to bed last night after having read several hours. I am very happy that I found your book.

    My friend Jost Heider, who meets Eric Morris from time to time to work with him, surely will be astonished when he gets aware of my steps. 🙂

    Thanks for the fabulous note! Can’t tell you how much I appreciate you responding. Did you hear about me on a podcast or just by searching Amazon? Did you find the blog post by following the mikecarrollfilms.com on the back of the book?
    Many, many thanks & sorry to keep you up so late!

    Yesterday I meant [to attract] instead of [to tear].

    Good Morning Mike, [8:00 a.m.]

    Thanks for your personal answer!

    When searching on http://www.amazon.de?tag=wp-amazon-associate02-21 English Books for “Panasonic DVX100” and some other terms like “dramaturgy of films” and “artful films” I found your book and three others in German language, which is my first language.

    I followed the link on the back of your book.

    With kind Regards
    Hans Kolpak
