The Producer Bootcamp podcast

By Paulina
The Producer Bootcamp podcast lifts the veil and questions the film industry at its core. Here, we no longer accept what we’ve been told to accept. We don’t believe in the notion of art vs. commerce. We believe art is commerce.

Nancy Sanchez gives the details on film distribution and marketing TODAY!
Nancy is awesome. She knows her shit when it comes to distro and marketing for films. She isn’t shying away from what isn’t working and how film makers need to be readjusting their whole idea of how they see film marketing if they want their film to be successful. We speak the same language.

What makes a good deal.
Tax credits and incentives don’t make a bad deal good. They only make a good deal better. So how do you make sure your movie is a good deal? It’s in the margins.

Accept it won’t be easy. Choose to make it fun.
The more we can accept that making a movie is difficult REGARDLESS of if we DIY it or go with a distribution company, the less blind we will be to the inevitable work that lies ahead of us. Make it fun by diving into the work with good, creative, hardworking people.

When you’re feeling like s**t.

Community. It’s important.
Why are we doing everything on our own? Why does self-distribution even have the word “self” in it? Makes no sense. Community is king. There’s power in numbers.

F**k the release window
Why hasn’t anyone challenged the 2-4 week release window yet? Why is that the metric for our film’s success? Other businesses don’t do that. Why are we giving up before we’ve even started?
