SELLING YOUR FILM WITHOUT SELLING YOUR SOUL is the first book to strip away the mythology surrounding independent film distribution to present the real picture on revenue earned from a variety of release strategies. This book highlights a multitude of new techniques filmmakers are using to directly connect their films with audiences, effectively reach them through the power of the global Internet and build a sustainable fan base to last throughout a career.
Within the pages of this book, you will find marketing and crowdfunding strategies, real distribution budgets, community building activities and detailed ancillary and digital distribution revenues for independently produced films such as: Ride The Divide, The Cosmonaut, The Best and The Brightest, Sita Sings the Blues, Note by Note, Bass Ackwards, Adventures of Power, Violet Tendencies, American: The Bill Hicks Story, Undertow, For the Bible Tells Me So, and the webseries Pioneer One.
The True Independent Film Distribution Figures and Fables!
Jon Reiss and Sheri Candler have, along with The Film Collaborative, taken a serious look at case studies of the real figures and details behind indie film distribution and shared transparent data, multiple point of view analysis plus the filmmaker perspectives on numerous projects, in a transparent and informative book that will give you a real insight into the realities and myths of distributing films the indie way... which, let's face it, is sometimes the only way. This book makes things somewhat easier in what has previously been a difficult field to navigate with the limited information that's been available until now. Well laid out and very informative.
Good Case Studies Albeit too US-Centric
Very detailed case studies and a range of different ideas and films covered. My only gripe is that the book is too US-focused and the landscape shifts so quickly that some information is a bit dated. An enlightening read nevertheless!
