I made a movie. I need 50,000 people to view it to make my money back (approx $10/each). How do I do this if I had lets say fifty grand to pay for it.
Host private screenings and try to find theaters that will show it. Usually the majority of ticket sales go to the distributor, but if you're your own distributor then obviously it goes to you.
Put as much money into marketing as possible, but $50k probably won't get you very far. You will probably want to take a guerilla marketing approach, and maybe try and do interviews or publicity stunts to promote it
I have all that but it doesn't do shit. I need to tap into the vein of the masses. Like How about like YouTube ads, if I paid 50k for 5 million trailer views, and it's a good trailer. How many of those would view it. That is the kind of easy formula I'm trying to figure out
>Paying for a movie camera
Sell that back to whoever scammed you out of a $20,000 meme movie camera
Movies is good business one that i hope to get in to myself one day. Production side that is.
The key with low budget films is to enter film festivals and competitions, then go to companies offering product placement. Product placement is where most of the money comes from.
It's a little boost for financing, that's about it.
This. You should have done this research before you hit the red button you stupid faggot.
Get ready to be fucked up the ass by sunk costs. Barring a distribution deal or getting a real directing gig from the strength of your backyard feature, you might break even if you figure a year of your productive lifespan is worth nothing.
Dude I work in film as a cameraman. My brother is a director.
This is not how you make money.
The "Indie" film is a showpiece, so someone in Hollywood takes notice of your work, then hires you on to something that will pay you well.
If you have some questions, feel free to ask, but your strategy here is pretty damned silly.
