Indie Film Marketing 101: Design A Website For Your Film
Most filmmakers and artist do not even think about marketing or distribution when creating a new project. This is where many projects fail. The first line of defense in creating a brand or image around your project is YOUR WEBSITE. Designing a killer website for tour film is one of the most under estimated part of the indie filmmaker’s marketing plan.
Distributors, film festivals, production companies and even the general public (who is more savvy than ever these days) looks at a website as a sign of the quality of the project they are being sold. If the website sucks, then impress people get is…
“…more than likely the film or project doesn’t have great production value or good story telling and I should just move on.” Now, I know what you’re going to say,
“But Alex I’m not a technical person and don’t have the money to hire a web designer.”
I hear you, I can’t write code if my life depended on it but I built this entire website by myself in under a week. IFH.com is much more complicated your basic film site so don’t worry. I show you how I did it.
