99% done with my first short film. What next? Ahhhh
I came to these boards panicked a few months ago as I began editing my first short film. I'm happy to say that I've locked picture and am having it color corrected as we speak. So just a huge thanks to you guys on the boards and on the pod for helping me out with my question.
Here's my new question. What the f do I do once it is finished? I mean, I plan on looking at some film festivals to submit it to, but it can take months to get a response on those usually. Do I submit to a bunch and just hold off on planning any kind of digital release to keep it new and fresh for prospective festivals? What if I wait for months and gets Nos? I plan on working on something as soon as I'm done with the short, but wanted to dedicate some thought into how to properly release a short. Any thoughts would be super appreciated. Thanks guys!
