THROWBACK FRIDAY: How to Launch Your Indie Film on iTunes with Brad Raider

Please note: Throwback Fridays are archival episodes from the Indie Film Hustle Podcast. After many requests from the IFH Tribe to bring back some of the show’s best episodes, I decided to create Throwback Fridays. These episodes will not be posted every week but at least twice a month…if not more. There are so much amazing info and knowledge bombs in many of these past episodes and I don’t want them to be lost in the sea of IFH Content so I’ll be putting a spotlight on them in Throwback Fridays. Enjoy!

How to Launch Your Indie Film on iTunes with Brad Raider

If you want to see a self-distribution pathway to get your film on iTunes and actually make some money meet actor/director Brad Raider. His film Kensho at the Bedfellow was released on iTunes this year and he shares his marketing and distribution strategy with us in this episode.

This is Meg being released on iTunes in the summer I was ALL EARS. Take a look at the trailer below.

Here’s a bit about the film:

LOGLINE: Kensho at the Bedfellow is an existential drama about a guy in New York City searching for fulfillment in all the wrong places.
SHORT SYNOPSIS:
Playwright turned doorman of The Bedfellow Hotel, Dan Bender is reeling from the death of his little sister. In a sex-and-drug filled odyssey through Manhattan, his desperate search for fulfillment reunites him with a childhood love and ultimately, catalyzes a consciousness-expanding journey of self-discovery.

Two-time Best Feature Film winner at six festivals, KENSHO is a visionary, existential drama and the extraordinary directorial debut of actor/director Brad Raider. The truly independent, micro-budget film is at the heart of the conscious-cinema movement and a proud partner of the International Rescue Committee, donating a percentage of net profits to their humanitarian efforts around the world.
