You finished your film and you now feel uncertain about what to do next. It happens so often—even with savvy indie filmmakers. In some cases paralysis sets in. And, at worst, you simply let your film die. Don’t let this happen to you.
Our ECHELON STUDIOS DISTRIBUTION Program offers opportunities to successfully and economically launch your film:
* An opportunity to book your film in a prestigious art house theater in New York and/or Los Angeles.
* An opportunity to market your film to the digital platforms (iTunes, Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Google, and Sony).
* An opportunity to market your film to TV stations and networks (domestic and international).
* An opportunity to market DVDs of your film to retail chains, schools, colleges, and libraries.
DON’T GIVE UP!
We’d like to point out that some noteworthy directors never won an Oscar. And yet they plowed on. They were never discouraged. They kept directing films, and some very memorable ones. Here are a few examples and their films that were nominated but never won:
Alfred Hitchcock: Rebecca, Spellbound, Rear Window, and Psycho.
Orson Welles: Citizen Kane, The Magnificent Ambersons, and Touch of Evil.
Stanley Kubrick: Dr. Strangelove2001: A Space Odyssey, A Clockwork Orange, and Barry Lyndon.
Robert Altman: MASH, The Player, Short Cuts, and Gosford Park.
The lesson to be learned from the above is that filmmakers should do everything humanly possible to launch their films, no matter what. If you don’t try, you’ll never know!
RULES FOR FILMMAKING
Rule #1. Open your film in a well-established theater in New York and/or Los Angeles. It’s the best way to give your film exposure and credibility.
Rule #2. Hire only a media-savvy publicist to contact the film critics, write and mail press releases, set up interviews, and compile and distribute production notes.
Rule #3. Start early on the three most important ancillary markets: (a) the digital platforms (iTunes, Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Google, and Sony), (b) TV Sales (both domestic and international), and (c) DVD Sales (retail chains, schools, colleges, and libraries).
Rule #4. Promote your film on the search engines (Google, Bing, and Yahoo) and the Social Networks (Facebook, Twitter). Be pro-active. Depending on others can be dangerous.
Rule #5. Make sure your film is feature length (minimum 70 minutes).
Rule #6. Adhere to the 50/50 percentages. Allocate 50% of your budget for producing the film and 50% for marketing and promoting your film. Unfortunately, this is the rule most frequently ignored.
Rule #7. Don’t edit your own film. Trust me. It won’t be easy to be objective.
Rule #8. Don’t rush to distribute nationally. Establish a track record with a successful New York or Los Angeles run.
Rule #9. Don’t overspend on filmmaking equipment. A key to your success will be keeping down your costs. Remember, it’s going to be your vision and talent that will produce a worthwhile film and not the money you spend for the latest high-tech equipment.
Rule #10. Use professionals to create your website, produce your trailer, and design your poster.  These are not places to squeeze the nickel.

不要放弃!
我们想指出,一些值得注意的导演从来没有赢得过奥斯卡奖。然而,他们耕耘。他们从未气馁。他们一直在导演电影,还有一些非常难忘的电影。
这里有几个例子,他们的电影提名但从来没有赢得:
Alfred Hitchcock:Rebecca,Spellbound,后窗,和Psycho。
奥森·威尔斯:公民凯恩,宏伟的法国人,和邪恶的触摸。
Stanley Kubrick:Strangelove博士,2001:太空奥德赛,发条橙和Barry Lyndon。
罗伯特·奥特曼:MASH,球员,短切和戈斯福德公园。
从上面的教训是,电影人应该尽一切可能推出他们的电影,无论如何。如果你不尝试,你永远不会知道!
电影制作规则
规则1。在纽约和/或洛杉矶的一个完善的剧院里打开你的电影。这是给你的电影曝光和可信度的最佳方式。
规则#2。只聘请媒体精明的宣传人员联系电影评论家,撰写和邮寄新闻稿,设置采访,编辑和发行制作笔记。
规则#3。从三个最重要的辅助市场开始:(a)数字平台(iTunes,Netflix,Amazon,Hulu,Google和Sony),(b)电视销售(国内和国际)和(c)DVD销售零售连锁店,学校,学院和图书馆)。
规则#4。在搜索引擎(Google,Bing和Yahoo)和社交网络(Facebook,Twitter)上宣传您的电影。主动。依赖于别人可能是危险的。
规则#5。确保你的电影是功能长度(最少70分钟)。
规则#6。坚持50/50的百分比。分配50%的预算制作电影和50%的营销和推广你的电影。不幸的是,这是最常被忽视的规则。
规则#7。不要编辑你自己的电影。相信我。客观是不容易的。
规则#8。不要急于分配国内。建立一个成功的纽约或洛杉矶运行记录。
规则#9。不要超支电影制作设备。成功的关键是降低成本。记住,这将是你的愿景和才能,会产生一个有价值的电影,而不是你花在最新的高科技设备上的钱。
规则#10。使用专业人士来创建您的网站,制作您的预告片,并设计您的海报。这些不是挤压镍的地方。
