1. An Introduction to TMC & the harsh truths of the industry. A filmmaker MUST always think about distribution even as early as at the script stage.
2. Distribution in simple terms. A filmmaker MUST learn at least the basics of worldwide sales to stand a chance with the sales agents.
3. Pick your projects very carefully – Genre? Format? Etc. Know about the world buyers’ demand for content.
4. Never lose sight of your vision! Get ready to “fight” for your project.

    I look forward to learning more about specific distribution outlets for writers that have scripts that have gotten recognition, but not yet produced. Any thoughts?
