The journey begins
During my efforts to make a film, it became apparent that a lot of filmmakers don’t understand the financial end of the industry. In particular, many don’t know how a film drives revenues and recoups the initial investment. There are a myriad of reasons for this (that I’ll get into later). I sat down and began a quest to find people who did know and who would share the information. It wasn’t as easy as I had thought it would be. When I did speak with people knowledgeable on the subject, they weren’t optimistic about the chances of small films being profitable.
