Traditional independent filmmaking is changing. In years past, the independent movie business was defined by a filmmaker’s ability to find a script, locate movie investors, raise the necessary money, make the movie and (hopefully) land an awesome distribution deal – and then live happily ever after.
At least that was the dream.
But these days, the entire model of indie filmmaking has gone Topsy-Turvy. Nobody knows this better than Jon Reiss and Sheri Candler. Both are on the cutting edge of independent movie marketing and distribution.
Earlier this week, Sheri Candler and Jon Reiss stopped by Filmmaking Stuff to share some ideas on how filmmakers can think outside the box office. You can download This Filmmaking Stuff Podcast
