Keni Arts, a 30 year veteran of the movie & television industry, has written his first book, Back Lot Talk. 

Back Lot Talk is a fun read whether you're familiar with show business or not, and Keni's nicely rendered drawings add to the fun and our understanding. Back Lot Talk is especially useful in helping permits (novices) quickly gain their footing in the industry and may serve as a refresher course for journeymen. Add to these benefits Keni's lighthearted essay on the serious challenges to breaking into the showbiz workforce and you have both a fun and informative read.

The Hollywood scene, like much of the entertainment industry, is constantly changing, but Keni has done us all a great service by capturing some of its lingo, and a bit of its history, for posterity. Enjoy.
