I plucked this one from the Film Specific archives – one of our most popular Case Studies…..
After several years of attending film markets and studying the dynamics, learning the “business” of filmmaking and distribution, and meeting the buyers face-to-face, filmmaker Christian Viel started selling his films (and those from other filmmakers) at international film markets.
After a couple years learning ropes and establishing relationships, Christian began making deals directly with buyers from around the world, and even securing pre-sales on his own.
Take a listen and see if you aren’t inspired to tackle the next major Film Market (AFM) on your own. Or would you rather spend your energies elsewhere and stick with a sales agent (at least at first)? This Case Study will help you decide….
