Predatory Film Distributors – The Minimum Guarantee Scam
Today on the show I continue my series on Predatory Film Distributors. An IFH Tribe member reached out to me to let me know about a scam that she almost fell for. If she hadn’t reached out to a very experienced entertainment attorney, she would have lost $90,000. I’m calling this The Minimum Guarantee Scam.
I reveal the scam on the show and discuss how you can protect yourself. Stay safe out there. Things are getting scary.
