Dollar Deal: The Story of the Stephen King Dollar Baby Filmmakers

Dollar Deal: The Story of the Stephen King Dollar Baby Filmmakers by Shawn S. Lealos

“Interesting and sometimes quite brilliant.” – Stephen King
New Year
This is how the Master of Horror describes the Dollar Babies, short films made by young filmmakers looking to get their big break in Hollywood. King has been offering this to filmmakers since 1976, with Frank Darabont (Shawshank Redemption) as the biggest success story.

‘Dollar Deal’ is written by Dollar Baby filmmaker Shawn S. Lealos as he tells the story of 19 filmmakers who made it to the big time thanks to the generosity of Stephen King, including interviews with Peter Sullivan (Night Surf), Nick Wauters (Rainy Season), Jeff Schiro (The Boogeyman), Jay Holben (Paranoid), and many more.
