"Jay Shanker and Kirk Schroder have produced a truly comprehensive book on the business and legal aspects of the major fields in the entertainment industry. Although meant for entertainment lawyers and executives, this book is also a manual for all creative talent who want to understand this business."

Margot Shetterly
Author of Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Who Helped Win the Space Race

"Rob Williams has written a comprehensive overview on the process and core foundations of motion picture financing. The chapter provides a sophisticated level of practical detail, and in my view will be an excellent resource for interested parties."

Piers Tempest

"Steve Monas' chapter on Motion Picture Distribution is so well-written and so full of practical insights and useful tips that even after my own 30 years in the business, I found it exceptionally enlightening and engaging.  I can only imagine how incredibly helpful it'll be for anyone at the beginning of an entertainment career or looking to break into this area."

Marla Levine

“Steve Monas knows what he’s talking about—he has seen these deals from every side, and lived to tell the tale!”

"As the managing partner at Singer Burke Zimmer, LLP, I am eager to have a concise resource available that covers the complex legal and taxation environment as it relates to the Entertainment Industry, especially with the level of detail and transparency that Shane and Brad have brought to this subject matter.  I highly recommend this book to the tax practitioner, as well as the non-tax practitioner, for an in-depth look at the intricacies and opportunities of today’s changing laws, including the recently enacted Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  Congratulations on a book that is bound to help many entrepreneurs, as well as established business owners, as they start/continue their journey.  Job Well Done!"
