UNDERSTANDING DISTRIBUTION & MARKETING
NO FILM SCHOOL. NO TRUST FUND. NO PROBLEM.
- Have you heard horror stories about filmmakers getting distribution deals but never seeing a dime?
- Do you feel in the dark about how films make money?
- Do you want to maximize your investors return so you can make another film?
- Do you feel clueless on how to find and secure a sales agent?
If I had to pick the number ONE aspect that led to my success on my very first film, it would be that from day one I focused on the desired end result, which was getting the movie distributed and on Hallmark! This allowed me to reverse engineer the entire process and lead to not only securing international distribution deals and a Hallmark Original Premier, but also led to making my investors happy and being able to finance my next film. I'm so excited to share all I've learned with you!
