So you got this smash film and now what do you do with it. I’m personally not near in producing my own film yet but I want to know what my outlets are. My roots are in the music business and we also have the same issues. Distribution…the elusive holy grail. You hear it all the time, “once we get distribution, we’re set” or better yet, “trying to get distribution is a b*tch”. Most distributors aren’t looking at you unless you are doing something big on your own. Which if you think about it correctly, then you don’t REALLY NEED THEM. With how technology is now, all you need is a little time and a plan to get things out. Jon Reiss and Sherri Candler present a creative way on how to get your films out without “selling” your soul!

This is a must read for independent filmmakers that are wondering what to do next with their projects, besides entering them in film festivals and like. If you get and get it now, it’s FREE in most formats except paperback until October 1st, 2011 and after that will be available for $4.99 which is still awesome for this kind of information, definitely this is a must have in your arsenal!

Hopefully this will inspire you as it has inspired me!

Check out their website

  1. thanks for the shoutout Michael. It is indeed free, but only until Oct 1. If you miss the free period, the price for digital is only $4.99 which is still quite affordable.

    Hello Sheri, I’ve updated the information accordingly! Thank you for putting together this resource! I just downloaded it late last night to my iphone and will be reading it during my Zen time :-), getting myself mentally prepared for a music video shoot this weekend with the director that I worked with on the 24hr Film Race, Leo RIcciardi, I’m excited!

    Thanks again…
