Numbers! Actual numbers! Four filmmakers reveal distribution details

It’s very hard to get actual numbers out of ANYbody in the film business. I have yet to figure out exactly why this is… perhaps it is because 90%+ of filmmakers are in the red? Not sure.

But anyway, over at they have the first of two articles were some indie filmmakers reveal how well – and HOW – their films did when it comes to distribution.

Of course this article can’t be seen as any kind of scientific report – the sample size is painfully small and we are still in a high trust mode when it comes to the actual figures. Also, if they were willing to share I am guessing that these films are on the ‘success’ side of the equation.

All those caveats aside, I applaud these filmmakers for being so open. Can’t wait for part 2!
