But actually there’s a glut of film carnivals. The number of film carnivals is way out of whack compared to the number of movie distributors that release independent flicks.
Skipping the film jubilee circuit works for numerous independent movie directors that do not have name actors in their film or know their story will not appeal to an art house crowd.
Hiring a film deals representative is a good call if you skip the film jubilee scene each together. A film deals representative or patron’s rep has connections with movie distributors to get your movie screened.
Plus numerous of them can get you into magazines like Indie Slate and MovieMaker to make your movie look more charming to movie distributors.
They also watch your reverse when it comes to movie distribution agreements. When filmmakers look at movie distribution agreements it can be inviting.
There’s lots of legalese” mumbo Goliath” in there designed to lessen the quantum of plutocrat you make from movie kingliness payments or a straightforward steal- eschewal of your movie.
Unless you have experience reading movie distribution contracts it’s easy to get taken advantage of. I am in the habit know indeed if I’ve a flicks deals representative like” El Tigre” watching my reverse I still read all contracts fully.
You’ll be surprised at the retired freights and costs some movie distributors try to get over on a filmmaker with in of all places, the contract delineations section.
My film deals rep and I formerly set up a flat figure of$,000 for marketing costs in the delineations section.
Hiring an entertainment attorney is another good move, but generally is too expensive for a truly independent filmmaker. Plus from my own experience an entertainment attorney isn’t as helpful as a film deals rep with securing a movie distribution deal or getting you some press.
That is not really the job an entertainment attorney. They are great when it comes to negotiating your movie distribution contract. But utmost will not get you a deal like a film dealsrep. You can bring them in after you have a deal on the table.
I had two sharp entertainment attorneys that saved my burro from getting burned when it came to vend a reality show I produced called” America’s Wildest Bachelorette Parties.” They got me a patron friendly contract and got me paid on time each quarter. I am glad I hired them.
If it’s just not in your budget to hire a film deals rep or entertainment counsel you can still secure meaningful movie distribution hustling hard yourself.
