How To Find Producer’s Rep That Is Best For Your Film?

If a producer’s rep or sales agent asks for a flat fee paid up front for their services, that doesnʼt show much confidence in your film or their ability to represent it in the best possible way.

Instead, a producer’s rep who gets your film and trusts it will have an audience that is motivated and equipped to sell the movie to others. The same applies for a publicist.

How To Find Producer’s Rep That Is Best For Your Film?

The best way to find Producer’s Rep that is best for your film is at the Film Festivals. Check these professionals before you hire them to work for your film. Many of them would work with you on the upfront retainer fees. Remember, they will be working with you for your film. They are the experts in their fields but youʼre the driving force behind your film. Donʼt be afraid to ask questions.  You may ask a producerʼs rep: “What is your opinion of my film? How many films will you be representing at the festival?  If youʼre representing  many films, will you personally tend to each film, or will you hand my film to a someone else in your company?”  If you donʼt feel their passion and commitment for your film is there, you should not sign with them to represent your film, even if you know theyʼre one of the best in the industry. They may not be the best for your film.


Subscription VOD Distribution (SVOD)

Film Distribution. Subscription VOD Distribution (SVOD)

Subscription Video On Demand allows subscribers to sign up for a service, pay a monthly fee and in exchange, have access to unlimited programming. This model is great for consumers because, well, they can watch anything. Getting your title onto an SVOD platform could be great for discovery.

Netflix: How to Distribute You Movie on Netflix

Netflix will not make an offer for your movie unless they are interested in your movie. Think of Netflix the same way you think about HBO or Showtime. And like all premium subscription channels, they want movies with a strong “name” cast, social media stars and stuff that won major festival awards.

If your movie meets these criteria, your best bet for Netflix (assuming you are in their database) is working with an aggregator with a track record for negotiating great deals with them. As a possible downside, unless you strike a great licensing deal you may be a little disheartened if your title gets a million views and you have not seen a dime.

Amazon Prime: How to Distribute You Movie on Amazon Prime

Going beyond their TVOD service, Amazon has expanded their product offering to include an SVOD service called Amazon Prime. Through Amazon Prime, filmmakers can make their movies available for discovery. And Unlike Netflix, Amazon Prime actually pays you every time your movie is streamed!

While this is equal to pennies on the dollar (you net roughly 5 cents per stream), having your movie available to millions of subscribers could potentially add up.

#2 Tip For Making Your First Film

#2 Tip For Making Your First Film

Your Budget
• Planning and understanding the reality and affordability of the project!
• Independent filmmaking is about using resources that you have and leveraging resources you don’t have. One way or another, before you start anything, you must set your budget.
• You need to come up with a strategy for the entire film project.
• Be creative and flexible. From the very beginning, you must know what service or services you will be able to pay for, what services you can trade and what services you can use in exchange for credits and so on.
