This week Timothy and Alrik have two wonderful topics lined up but don’t even get to them due to an intense discussion about distribution. We also discuss Timothy’s plans for The Spirit Machine, Alrik’s realizations about his career and much more!
Timothy discusses his new plans for The Spirit Machine!
Topic of the week – The Distribution Argument!
The daily struggle quickly veer’s into a deep argument about distribution and the way you HAVE to look at it as a independent filmmaker.
Things we discuss during this argument include:
Tugg – The company that lets you rent out theaters for your feature films.
Kinonation – A self distribution aggregator that gets your film out to every VOD distribution source for one price at one click.
Caffeinated – I’m pretty sure this is the coffee movie Timothy mentions on the podcast that Alrik actually has heard about…
In the end of the discussion, nothing is resolved but maybe we all learned that you can’t rely on a distributor to come and save you and that you’ve gotta put in the work and come up with a back up plan on your own.
Timothy recommends this scene from Inside Llewyn Davis by the Coen Brothers, it’s super relevant to our conversation and a great scene!
Alrik recommends you check out the new Netflix movie Justin Timberlake and The Tennessee Kids directed by Jonathan Demme!
Thanks for listening!
