In the following filmmaking podcast, I share some thoughts on how we might actually make independent filmmaking profitable again. Specifically, I compare the filmmaking production process to any small business. And I share my thoughts on VOD (video on demand) distribution – and how this sales channel finally gives every filmmaker the opportunity to create multiple streams of movie income.
I spoke at the UCLA film school and I got the impression that the next generation of filmmakers are open to new ideas, and new ways of making movies. Thanks to familiarity with YouTube as well as access to affordable production equipment, many modern filmmakers are embracing accessible, non-discriminatory distribution channels without hesitation or excuses.
