GET REELISMS contains 100+ film set terms, unofficial set etiquette rules, and a bunch of other film set insider secrets that will help you navigate and succeed on a film set. It is a book for anyone who wants to know about or already has an obsession for "set life."
The book is divided into 4 major sections:
- 5 Stages of Filmmaking
- Walkie Talkie Etiquette
- The ABCs of Film Set Lingo
- Film Hierarchy
Sometimes it can be really hard to talk to my friends and family who aren't in the industry about what I do since we use so much jargon, but I can throw Get Reelisms at them and in an afternoon they've got the lingo down. I would get this for anybody interested in either going into film or being able to talk about film like they are in it already.

My 12-year-old daughter has been working on films for several years and loves it so much that she wants to become a director when she’s older. This book has been great because it gives all the ins and outs of being on a film set and is super fun to read. I even love looking through it and learning about everything. I sit on many sets and have no idea what’s going on… And the book makes it easy to learn and the pictures make it much more understandable.
