I think of films as our children and filmmakers are the parents. Distributors and platforms are the educational institutions and the people that work there are the aunts, uncles and teachers. Hollywood is the government. We each play a role in the lives of these films and we need each other.
Some distribution companies are like an orphanage because
the filmmaker has abandoned their film. I see IndieFlix as a full ride scholarship
to a great institution. We even transport you there but its up to the filmmaker
to show up, participate and work in order to benefit. I think this is true for anything we do
in life. I am hard pressed to find
a job or process that magically brings return on investment just by
showing up and saying, I’m here.
You have to put consistent energy into it. You have to work it. Distributing your film is similar to raising your child.
