Does Your Indie Film Have an Audience?
I’m never surprised anymore when I speak to filmmakers and ask them one simple but powerful question,
Does your film have an audience?
I usually just get a blank stare. This is probably the most important question you can ask yourself as a indie filmmaker. Now if you are making film as art and have no intention or care at all about making money with your film then should stop reading this email.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with that but that is not what I’m discussing here today. For the rest of us that want and need to make money with our films these few little words should be your mantra in the development process.
Most filmmakers get so excited by the concept of a story, the emotion or just with the idea of making a feature film that they never ask the question. They are scared to because it might stop the fun they are having. Trust me I know the feeling.
