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.

I disagree with your first sentence, mainly because it is one of the first things I read when looking up becoming an indie filmmaker. Marketing it, or the building of a following was stressed in many of the articles I read. But I think the idea of a web site for the film is important! Thanks for posting a how-to.

Yeah I think in this day an age, online marketing is the main factor in a film getting viewed and we all know that. But marketing the right way is the question that we need to be asking. Nice post Alex.
