As a filmmaker with a finished feature film, it’s important to maintain positive thinking and keep your fingers crossed for a great distribution deal.
But after months and months of hustle, the reality of how you’ll garner ROI (return on investment) might be slightly different than the idealized imaginings of the 3 picture deals you once had.
Let’s face it, the old way of indie filmmaking is over.
No longer can you make a movie on spec and cross your fingers for theatrical distribution or even straight to DVD distribution. These old school distribution outlets are more like pipe dreams than a viable marketplace.
So what now?
How about the future of filmmaking?
But this time around, instead of being limited by a few territorial deals, you can (from your bedroom), market your movie to a global audience.
This is just the tip of the iceberg.
For those of you who have a feature film on a book-shelve, it’s time to get it selling. In future videos, I will work to address all the new methods in digital self distribution of your movie.
