The Future Reality of Movie Business

Written by Peter Feuersenger, BA (film)

A mini-version of the Movie Business Plan 2014 is being created on the Facebook page. Today, an Introduction:

The Movie Industry is currently experiencing a Digital Tsunami, with the introduction of 4K video (Ultra HD) smart TV technology, and lower cost 4K Cameras & Post Production Equipment. The business goal of Sony Universal Studios is to sell 4K streaming movies online through their own web portals. The Internet is evolving toward streaming 4K video. 

Any Independent Producer can sell their movie property through their own website, as well as through commercial services including Vimeo On Demand, Google Play, iTunes, Amazon, eBay, etc. YouTube currently allows uploading and streaming of 4K movies, if you have the required bandwidth & equipment to play.

With 4K video, Independent Producers can create theatrical quality movies at a lower cost and sell directly to viewers online. Independent Producers with great movies, will be able to compete on a level playing field with Major Studies. Knowledge, relationships and experience are key. The quality of your story & production values are the foundations for financial success. A good story enables positive comments and word of mouth to increase marketing and sales. Ensure that your movie is available everywhere at a price you can set. Marketing and Distribution through Social Media is free & creative, and within your power to determine. Have a long term business plan!

This business plan will follow the development of The Darkside Movie project, an original project by Peter Feuersenger, B.A. (film). The script is undergoing a rewrite, and expected to go into production 2014.

This Movie Business Plan (a Guide to Independent Movie Production & Distribution), is being written and expanded to include the latest, best information and links. Updates to the plan will be posted on the Movie Business Plan Facebook feed.    Please Like for updates!
