“… this handy book by industry veteran Raquel Benitez Rojas is … a fantastic addition to the genre of how-to books dealing with live action and animated filmmaking. What makes her take on the business different from others is her practical knowledge of the inner workings of the industry, because she herself has directed and produced content for TV, digital media, and theatrical releases. She reviews all the various steps of a project, from the earliest stages of development, through financing, clearing rights, hiring writers and artists, production, signing co-pro deals, and taking advantage of global tax credits, all the way to licensing, merchandising, distribution and residuals.” —Ramin Zahed, Editor, Animation Magazine
