It’s widely acknowledged that indie film distribution is undergoing a sea change. With such evolution afoot, great deals get harder to find -- if you can find one at all -- and many filmmakers are scrambling to adapt to a new Do-It-(All)–Yourself economy, or settling for giving up all their rights for an old-school deal and just hoping for the best.
Meanwhile across the aisle, another kind of digital creative industry thrives with success: indie video games. Even tiny little indie projects can make it in the world of video games, thanks to the full-service ethic of its Publishers. Acting more like record labels or book publishers than traditional movie distributors, these all-in-one digital partners offer indie game developers support, distribution and marketing/awareness strategy, consolidated under one roof.
What can these indie rockstars teach us about distributing and promoting digital content that the film world hasn’t caught onto yet?
