The Business of Filmmaking with Antoine Allen
Time & Location
About the Event
As creatives it is easy to lose sight of the fact that filmmaking is a business. We get so wrapped up into wanting to get our films in festivals or on streaming platforms, that may not pay us our worth, we forget that there are other ways to get a return on the investment we put into our film projects. We forget to use our creativity to think outside the box and look for innovative ways to market and distribute our films. Antoine Allen has managed to transform his indie film aspiration into a successful filmmaking career without a distributor or sales agent. His marketing strategies for creating buzz around his film projects before they come out is outstanding. Antoine will share with us how he managed to make $80,000 on his indie film that no one was interested in buying and how his determination and fortitude has proven time and time again, there is money to be made as an independent filmmaker when you don’t limit yourself to the status quo.
