The Film Collaborative have just released an amazing resource: the new book “Selling Your Film Without Selling Your Soul”. This book is availible in a variety of formats. It’s available for free in PDF format, and it is free for a limited time for iOS and Android. It’s also available on Kindle and in paperback for a small fee.
So far I’m up to page 52 and I can assure you that this is absolutely essential reading for independent filmmakers. Indie producers, myself included, are usually quite coy about the financial side of filmmaking. Because of this, it can be quite hard to get an accurate estimate of how much a new project might actually cost, as well as the chances of it making that money back. Well, this book bares it all! I am shocked and delighted by the transparency of the filmmakers involved.
