tips/experiences for our first movie...
Posted 06 April 2007 - 03:47 PM
later fall,07. and this would be our first full feature. we've actually
got a B Actor through a connection that is interested in doing it...which
is our main force behind taking it to the next level.
will be NEW at finding buyers/investors, etc...
movie context: comedy. and, at this point we've really come to the
decision that if we actually want to try and sell this....its gotta be in
35mm (at minimum, 16mm) NO VIDEO! unless anyone has anything
to say about this theory/method......all ears!
any help how to approach these issues would be invaluable!

I'd sugjest considering shooting S16 and blowing up to 35 if your going to do a theatrical release...]
because its quite a bit cheaper to shoot 16 and blow up to 35???
I thought blow up was really expensive.
Plus, there's the quality issue, starting off with 35 sure boosts the quality level in trying to promote
it and sell it. doesn't it?
thanks for your time

There are a lot of moving parts to consider, and the marketplace changes quickly. To really explore the business side of things and how your origination format fits into the equation, I would recommend you talk to experienced producers, sales agents, distributors, producers' reps...people who buy and sell films for a living.
