              Whether defined by the carnivalesque excesses of Troma studios (The Toxic Avenger), the arthouse erotica of Metzger and Wishman, or the narrative experimentations of Ferrara, Van Peebles, Smith, Harmony Korine, underground cinema has achieved an important position within American... film culture. Often defined as cult and exploitation or alternative and independent, the American underground retains separate strategies of production and exhibition from the cinematic mainstream, while its sexual and cinematic representations differ from the traditionally conservative structures of the Hollywood system. Underground U.S.A. offers a fascinating overview of this area of maverick moviemaking by considering the links between the experimental and exploitative traditions of the American underground.

              Since 1998, Steve Balderson has made 17 feature films. Looking back on these years of productivity, Steve has crafted a volume of invaluable perspective, tips, how-tos and general philosophy about making independent films, no matter the budget, no matter the location.Balderson wo...rries little about who he will offend. Instead, he focuses his attention on what it takes to be a productive filmmaker in an industry that is risk averse and locked in a world where rigid process seems more important than creativity. This Kansas-born outsider has garnered awards, critical acclaim, and rave reviews globally, including one from Roger Ebert, who called him Brilliant. His film Casserole Club is in the U.S. Library of Congress permanent collection; Firecracker won numerous accolades in film festivals around the globe. And it goes on and on...These kudos notwithstanding, the real potency of this book is how Balderson's beliefs about making films and working with people - whether they be Oscar winning actors and Grammy winning musicians, or the waitress extra in the restaurant - have been the fuel for this remarkable collection of successful motion pictures. Read it, and then go make your film!
