Has anyone gone through distribution through Netflix and if so how was the process?
I am producing a documentary right now about llamas and going through ideas on how best to distribute it. Our first market to reach is people who own and love llamas. Base on our research DVD/BluRay sales will be enough to cover the cost of making the film but we obviously don't want to stop there.
I have been looking into having the film on Netflix but don't want to put the film on Netflix and have the possibility of losing potential DVD/BluRay sales. However if going through Netflix can return a substantial profit then to me it would be worth it because even if we lose DVD/BluRay sales we would be making it up there.
I have only known of people to get their films on Netflix through Distribber but I haven't heard from anyone who has gone through the process and if they thought it was worth it financially to go through Netflix. Obviously a lot of that is going to be based on how many people want to watch your film, but if any of you have gone through Netflix what was the process for you like and did you think that it was worth it?
