I HAVE A FEATURE FILM
One of the biggest questions I get asked when I speak to indie filmmakers is "How do I make money with my feature film?" So many people talk about how to make a film or series but not many are talking about how to actually make money with your new product. The distribution landscape is changing, almost daily, and it's hard to keep track of it all.
I decided to put the self-distribution model to the test with my film This is Meg. I learn so much about marketing, audience building, crowd funding, revenue streams & distribution. Take a look below for some inspiration, knowledge, and techniques to help get your film out into the marketplace and start making some money.

It’s harder today than ever before for independent filmmakers to make money with their films. From predatory film distributors ripping them off to huckster film aggregators who prey upon them, the odds are stacked against the indie filmmaker. The old distribution model for making money with indie film is broken and there needs to be a change. The future of independent filmmaking is the entrepreneurial filmmaker or the Filmtrepreneur®.
In Rise of the Filmtrepreneur® I break down how to actually make money with independent film projects and show filmmakers how to turn their indie films into profitable businesses. This is not all theory, I use multiple real-world case studies to illustrate each part of his method.
Take a listen to the first two chapters of the book. You need to think differently about how films are made and marketed.
