Notes to Create & Sell a Movie Online

Your ability to make a movie with high production values and compelling story, is only limited by your knowledge and experience.  This business plan will eventually provide sufficient links to create and sell your movie online.  This website will evolve over time.  More News & Information is available on the Movie Business Plan Facebook page.

The Business of Creating & Selling your movie is as follows:


Development

Visualizing the story, writing the Treatment, then the Screenplay.
Defining the primary audience, defining the marketing and creating the business plan.


Financing

Determining the type of money available.  Brain storming ideas, co-branding deals ...
The new Crowd Funding Rules in the U.S.A. sound promising.
The budget & expenses of the movie project, should be much less than the projected revenue.


Production

Storyboarding. 
Equipment (4K, 5K, 8K), determined by budget.
Locations.
Crew.
Talent.


Distribution Platforms / Sales

Unless you make an exclusive deal, your movie should be simultaneously available on all the major Video Streaming Platforms. These platforms benefit from their share in sales & ad revenue.  A list of online platforms will be provided in this plan.


Movie Marketing

The active use of social media generates buzz.  Do Twitter tweets, sponsored trends, Facebook ads, posts related to publicity, etc.

Have ready, a Mobile Movie Application, that can be downloaded for free, to engage the user with a compelling experience, showing an option to watch the movie, or buy the movie.
