"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!"

"Steve Monas is one of the top lawyers in the independent film distribution business, and he has brought his thirty-plus years of experience to bear in his chapter on Motion Picture distribution. Clear and concise, practical and interesting, filled with practical tips derived from actual sample agreements, this chapter will be of use to practitioners interested in developing expertise in these types of transactions, and even experienced attorneys will find it informative. It is so well-written that I plan to assign it to my motion picture seminar students, as soon as available."
