For those of you who have completed your feature film, one of the biggest challenges you have is finding a movie distribution company and a great deal.
I am currently working on the release of our first feature documentary called Toxic Soup and I can tell you that things are changing daily out there. The world of distribution as we once knew it – well, it’s gone. Fortuantly, I know a thing or two about getting some ROI on movies via internet self distribution.
I am working with some folks to create a one-stop-shop for those of you who wish to market and sell your movie so you don’t have to settle for a crappy deal. There is enormous need for it. I forget some times that most filmmakers would rather focus on making movies and let someone else handle the marketing and sales. Anyway, stay tuned – I’ll have a solution in a few short weeks.
And for those of you who can’t wait, my article on digital self distribution will hit the stands in an issue of Movie Maker Magazine. Hopefully this will be a good starting point for you.
If you are in a situation where you have a movie, but no deal – please feel free to leave a comment on this site, or email me directly. It will help me address your concerns.
And as always, if you want to stay up to date with the ever changing climate of filmmaking stuff, please feel free to sign up for my newsletter and also get a free copy of my book. Go here: www.FreeFilmmakingBook.com
