Breaking and Entering - The Education of a Film Producer Paperback – November 24, 2022
by Steve Starkey (Author)
How does one learn to become a film producer? Steve Starkey followed a circuitous and rather unlikely path that started with no job prospects or film-related experience and eventually led to working alongside some of the most influential directors of his generation, including George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, and Robert Zemeckis. A witty and engaging storyteller, Starkey recounts how he broke into the film business by sneaking onto the lot at Universal Studios, landing his first job as an electrician doing set lighting. Entertaining and enlightening, Breaking & Entering is a book about taking risks, being resourceful, working hard, working harder, and pursuing a dream. It's a book for anyone who ever sat through a movie and wondered how in the world could I get a job as a film producer.
About the Author
Academy Award-winning producer Steve Starkey is a longtime collaborator with legendary filmmaker Robert Zemeckis. After producing Death Becomes Her, his first film with Zemeckis, Starkey went on to produce and win the Academy Award for Best Picture on the film Forrest Gump. Following the film Contact, Zemeckis and Starkey formed the company ImageMovers with agent Jack Rapke. The first of their distinctive films with the new company included What Lies Beneath and Cast Away. After producing The Polar Express, Beowulf, and Monster House, the first feature-length films using motion-capture technology, Zemeckis, Rapke, and Starkey launched a company at Disney, Imagemovers Digital, to make feature films using that technology. A Christmas Carol and Mars Needs Moms were made under their new banner. During this time, Starkey produced films for a number of other directors, including Matchstick Men with Ridley Scott and The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio with Jane Anderson. Returning to live-action filmmaking, Zemeckis and Starkey continued their collaboration on Flight, The Walk, Allied, and Welcome to Marwen.
