About the Book


Rebel without a Deal
or, How a 30-year-old filmmaker with $11,000 almost became a Hollywood player

Authored by Vincent Rocca
Commentaries by Kevin Smith

ROBERT RODRIGUEZ without a doubt influenced this book. After reading Rebel without a Crew, Vince Rocca was inspired to keep a Journal, which has grown into a no-nonsense account of the real filmmaking process.

This 334 page book chronicles how a High School dropout made his first movie in five days for $11,000, landed and lost a multi-million dollar deal with both Warner Bros. and National Lampoon, later releaseing the movie through Warner Bros. where it went on to gross over one million dollars.

Everything is covered from film school to the idea, writing it and financing it, the entire shoot, postproduction, film festivals, meeting Kevin Smith and suicidal depression. No subject is taboo. This is a real account of no-budget filmmaking, down to profit and loss statements.

New York Times-bestselling author and award winning screenwriter and director, Kevin Smith lends his take on Vince’s Journey and relates his experience with Clerks.

Rebel Without a Deal is now available in paperback at Amazon! Also available for the Kindle, Nook and iPad.
