  • What if I don’t have a finished movie? What if I just have a script or an idea for a movie; should I still do a D&M plan?
    YES, the best time to do a D&M plan is at the idea or script phase. If you map out your marketing strategy at the idea or script phase then you will be able to build marketable elements into your movie that will help connect to your target audience.
  • What if I have a short film?
    If you want to release your short film and try to make money with it then YES, you will need a D&M plan. We charge $3,875 for all D&M plans; shorts or features. Note: It is the same amount of work to do a proper D&M plan for a short film as it is for a feature.
  • Is $3,875 for a D&M plan a good investment for me?
    You likely spent (or will spend) tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in making your movie. $3,875 for a comprehensive D&M plan is the best investment that you can make in giving yourself the most advantageous chance of getting audience / viewership and making your money with your movie. Our team are EXPERTS in Film Distribution & Marketing. We do a thorough and comprehensive customized release plan for your movie . . . giving you practical, realistic guidance on how to make your film successful!
  • Is it worth it for me to do a D&M plan when I can simply license my movie to a Distributor?
    This is the most commonly asked question. A Distributor will NOT do marketing for your movie; they will merely put your movie onto streaming platforms. For example: Suppose that they put your movie onto an AVOD platform like TUBI. Your movie will be one of 50,000 other movies & TV shows on that platform. How will the viewing audience find your movie in the vast sea of 50,000? They likely won’t; unless you do some marketing to create audience awareness. Your Distributor will NOT do marketing for your movie; you will have to do the marketing yourself. A D&M plan is your marketing strategy. You will absolutely need it!
  • I spent all of my money on making my movie and I have no money left over for marketing. What should I do?
    You should find an additional source of funding for doing Marketing; otherwise all of your hard work and expense in making the movie will go to waste if you don’t get your movie properly distributed and marketed.
  • Do you guarantee that my movie will get properly distributed and make money if I do a D&M plan?
    NO, we do not guarantee the success of any movie. Much of the success of a movie depends on how good the movie is. But we do assure that you will have a much better chance of success with a D&M plan.
  • Is the D&M plan “executable”? In other words, is the plan just theoretical or is it an actionable plan for releasing my movie?
    It is an ACTIONABLE Plan. It will give you a roadmap on exactly what to do; how to do it; and how much to spend. Obviously it’s up to you whether or not you follow every recommendation in the plan. And by the way, remember that you will need to have funds available to do marketing expenditures.
  • What if I need help with executing the D&M plan?
    If you don’t want to execute the plan yourself, our team can help you. We will charge you fair fees for our time and services; those fees are outlined in the plan.
  • What if the D&M plan doesn’t work? What if I end up losing money on my movie?
    The Film business is super high risk and many indie films lose money. With a D&M plan you will have a 5x better chance of making money with your movie, but there are no guarantees. If you can’t afford to lose money then perhaps you should think twice before making an indie film. We’re sorry to say it, but that’s the reality.
