SHERI CANDLER, Publicity and Marketing Manager.
So you've made your independent film. It's involved incredible persistence and passion, a huge struggle over every line, every choice, cut, and every single element in order to get the best movie possible. And now you're in huge debt but don't worry, you're going to get a sales agent to come on board, sell your movie and make you a ton of money - right?
REALITY CHECK: 99% of movies made, end up languishing in nowhere land, having not been picked up by a sales agent. Those that have been picked up, are now facing a long suffering wait as the sales agent takes their film to festivals and markets, hoping on selling it domestically and overseas. The sales agent are taking 30% commission, have a high list of expenses (possibly not even capped), and you're relinquishing your control of your baby putting your faith in someone else who doesn't know your kid as well as you do. It's going to be a long wait until you recoup your investment - that is, if you ever do.
Depressing right? Well, FINALLY the world has caught up to be in favor of the filmmaker! With products such as Dynamo Player, finally we can remain in control of distribution. As soon as your movie is finished, you can pop it online and rent it directly to your target audience. Your own VOD.
Rob will discuss how Dynamo works and why it's the future for filmmakers in distributing their movies.
However, sales still depend on getting the word out about your film - your audience must know where to find you. PR manager, Sheri Candler, will give you tips on how to maximize your visibility.
