Filmmaking is neither a hobby nor a passion

Creating a brand around your package and turning it into a product that looks like it is intrinsically salable make distributors want to take a closer look at your film. Also, distributors love existing property, like an already selling novel for which you happen to have an option. Find out if the selected production companies would be interested in the genre that your film is in. Additionally...

The secret to selling your film or how to get a distribution deal anywhere in the world

Did you know that if you are an American filmmaker, European distributors are much more likely to consider distributing your film and vice versa? It is true that most filmmakers won’t get their films into distribution in their own territories. But that is because these distribution companies assume that you have nothing new or exotic to show. Audiences demand to see films that let them...

Turn your film into a brand

The modern film industry is brand- and market-oriented, almost exclusively aimed at selling established names along with high-concept ideas. Creating a brand around your package and turning it into a product that looks like it is intrinsically salable makes distributors want to take a closer look at your film.

Ideally you will include a link to a trailer and an online version of the...

It means more work for them and they will want to take a big share of your property if they come on board. It is also likely that they will ask you to...

Attach that name to your film

To get to those bankable names and have them star in your film is almost impossible for the aspiring producer from Littletown, TX. A better route would be to get a name director interested in your property and rely on this name to attach A-list talent without shelling out hundreds of thousands of dollars for pay-or-play offers that will likely go nowhere. Another way to work around this old adage...

Find a niche and a name for your feature film

If you are not already an established and well-connected producer, your odds of selling a film are usually next to zero. One way to work around this is to team up with small distributors that serve a specific niche market. You should find the niche where product fits and will best sell. Film distributors are risk-averse and want names attached that can sell the pictures. It is the well-known...

Who is going to see your film?

You have finished your film. You spent hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars, sweated blood and doubted your sanity, but finally your masterpiece is playing on your den’s widescreen TV. But other than your mother, a handful of friends from high school, and the odd anonymous teenager on an online platform, who is going to see your film? With the advent of digital technology, filmmaking...
