I’ll be exploring successful marketing and distribution strategies and cover today’s opportunities for producers in the digital marketplace. What are the business models (revenue share vs advances), who does what, how to deal directly with platforms, what is the role of an aggregator, do you need one at all? This workshop is focused on two approaches/audiences:
– Producers that probably have a few documentaries/films/tv shows (that already did the normal distribution circuit) and wish to monetize their catalogue on digital platforms. I’ll be Focusing on the opportunities the current market is offering, and ways to distribute existing audiovisual content in the digital marketplaces.
– Producers that are finishing their new film/doc/tv series and probably don’t have a traditional sales agent (or don’t believe in the old model) And ways of international self-distribution using the digital platforms.
