Hi! My name’s Makenna and I’m an actress turned Producer currently working in feature films in the UK. I’m huge dog lover and keen adventurer – If there’s sunshine and sea, I’m there.
I sold my first ever film several years ago (which we made for a ripe old budget of £400 in a garage and sold for an advance of $7,500 before even making any actual sales). In all honesty the only reason I knew how to do so was by ‘failing forward’, sharing tips with friends, and asking those who had done it before me for help. It made me realise that there’s a massive elephant in the room in our industry when it comes to sharing actual REAL applicable information- everyone tells you that you can fund, budget, make and sell a film, but no one seems to actually be willing to share HOW they did it.
And so ‘The Movie Method’ was born, it’s my full intention to make this a transparent place on the internet for our industry- a place where you can actually get real answers when it comes to the business and marketing of your films, rather than the wishy washy stuff that’s served up time and time again elsewhere.
Film Sales- How to actually sell the damn thing!
Hands up if you’ve heard of someone who put their film on Youtube & then it got picked up and now they’re a huge Hollywood success? I think we all have, but here’s the spoiler: That is not how the industry works for 95% of us and we can STILL sell our films.
There is method to the madness, and once I’ve taught you the process that I’ve gone through to sell my projects, you’ll be able to do the same thing. You’ll also come out of this with an increased awareness of the film market as a whole, what is needed from you s a filmmaker, and what you can do to make your films more desirable to distributors.
This workshop is for you if you have wrapped on an entire film and then thought ‘what do I do with it now’. If you want to learn how backend sales work and how to seek financial return from your films to have a long & fruitful career, this workshop is for you. Also for Producers looking to be able to add ‘film sales’ to their CV!
It’s not for you if you’re not ready to look at film from a business & marketing perspective- We all love the romantic side of filmmaking, but once we’re through the process of it, it becomes about market navigation and desirability. I’m here to help you navigate that if you’re ready to hear it.
In this workshop you will learn:
- What you need to sell a film
- How to pitch it to the people who matter
- How the film market and film sales works
- What types of distribution there are
- What kind fo Sales deals to expect
- How to negotiate a deal
- What are deliverables and where do you even start
- How to utilise your successes here to snowball the budget of your next film & set yourself up for a paying career in film.
