The 5 Lies of Indie Film Distribution

Indie film distribution in a mystery to most indie filmmakers. It is filled with deception, scams, mis-information and straight out LIES! I wanted to put together an episode spotlighting the five major lies filmmakers hear about film distribution.

Like many truths in the world these might not be easy to swallow but there is hope. If you have a plan “BEFORE YOU SHOOT YOUR FILM” your odds of success go up greatly.

I see so many indie filmmakers killing themselves to make their films but have no idea how to recoup their money or actually make a living doing what they love to do. I hope this podcast helps.

    Hi Alex, is there a podcast player on this page? I did see the download link and was able to download the podcast. However, I can’t find a player. I’ve opened this page in both Chrome and Firefox. Thanks for all your great work!
