Previously I discussed the various distribution options for Microbudget Feature films and I noted that by and large the question of distribution has been solved for filmmakers. However, the big question mark we still face is marketing.
In this week's vlog post I wanted to start to tackle the question of feature film marketing and so here I go over some of the strategies you need to keep in mind as you consider how to market your film. As I note in the video, a lot of my ideas are inspired by (shamelessly stolen from...) filmmaker and author Jon Reiss. So I recommend you check out his website here: http://jonreiss.com
Also, you can purchase his book, "Think Outside The Box Office" on Amazon here (this isn't a sponsored thing, I'm not getting any cashback from this): http://jonreiss.com/books/
I also recommend this article by Jon from 2016 about the producer category he came up with (which I discuss in the video below) called a Producer of Marketing & Distribution or PMD: http://jonreiss.com/tag/producer-of-marketing-and-distribution/
Next week I'll look more concretely on how to use FB to advertise your film, just to give you a feel for the platform.
