If you are looking for movie money, you need to understand the difference between the indie film business VS traditional business.
Why? Because most prospective movie investors will come from other industries. And knowing how to talk in the language of traditional business will go a long way towards helping you communicate your proposition.
Where do we differ? The goal of the indie filmmaker and traditional businessman are the same – to produce, market, sell and distribute a product.
Problem is – when it comes to creating a movie, most filmmakers focus only on the production. And therein lies the problem.
Without any idea how to market, sell and distribute your movie – why the heck should anybody take you seriously?
