As a filmmaker, getting your movie made is paramount to success. Without a movie, you have nothing to offer your audience. Since your audience is your business, without an audience, you have no business!
If you have been reading Filmmaking Stuff for any length of time, you know that the world of distribution has forever changed. The days of multi-gazillion dollar cash advances are over. Instead, film distribution equivalent of the wild west.
To survive and thrive in this ever changing landscape, I believe that filmmakers must not only make good movies, but they must also become great marketers (or at least partner with someone who is). Since actually making a movie is nearly impossible, the thought of putting on yet another hat can seem overwhelming.
To help you in your filmmaking quest, I have decided to devote the next series of articles to helping you create a 12 week MovieMaker marketing plan. The truth is, ever since my book release, I have been trying to think of a way to make my next filmmaking book more interactive.
So with that said… Here we are. Over the next few weeks, most of my articles will revolve around movie marketing. I will write these articles in sequence and later, edit and publish as my next filmmaking book.
Since I already know this stuff, I am writing to add value to your filmmaking life. I value your constructive feedback and ideas for what should be included. Please feel free to comment.
