When it comes to Hollywood etiquette on the movie set, nobody gave better advice than Spencer Tracy. Asked by a young actor what advice the master could offer him, Tracy replied, “Know your lines and don’t bump into the furniture.” Strangely enough, no one has collected Hollywood’s movie set rules of behavior until now. Backed by the industry and film unions, there is no other resource book like ON THE SET: The Hidden Rules of Movie Making Etiquette by Paul J. Salamoff, an over twenty-year veteran of the movie industry with credits spanning over fifty films, ten television series and numerous commercials. Whether you are new to the industry, a seasoned pro or just interested in what the credits mean at the end of your favorite movie, this book is for you. Salamoff has worked in the industry as a Special F/X Make-Up Artist, Producer, Writer, Director and Executive and has compiled what he has learned throughout the years on movie sets to help others. “Not only will you learn about the different jobs on the movie set but, for the first time, you’ll discover the hidden rules of movie set etiquette they don’t teach you in film schools,” explains Salamoff. Each chapter covers a different movie set department (i.e. talent, grip, costume, electric, etc.). Offering practical advice from over 80 top industry professionals this vitally useful information is presented with wit and humor and packed with anecdotal advice that will not only help those wanting to break into film but actually help them succeed while trying.
