Filmmaker Conference 2009 – Whats the Deal – Filmmaking 2.0
With the DVD business on life support and pre-sales drying up, what does a typical “sale” look like and how does it differ from what buyers might have been able to offer just last year? Is theatrical too pie in the sky? Do filmmakers need to be more open to alternative platforms and broadcast sales? What is considered a good deal in today’s market?
