Everyone can make a movie but when it’s done, what’s the best way to get it out into the world? This week we have filmmaker Lucas Kitchen on the show to talk about his experience working with the aggregator Distribber, how much money his movie brought in and how it all works!
Our guest this week is East Texas Filmmaker Lucas Kitchen! Timothy found him online through an article he wrote about using Distribber to release his feature film, Indifferent Worlds so we brought him onto the show. In addition to being a filmmaker, Lucas is also a writer, here is the bio from his amazon page.
There’s four basic things you need to know about Lucas Kitchen.
1. He drinks iron-rich well water before he writes. It stains everything orange, but boy does it get the ideas flowing!
3. He hates the number two.
4. He gives his arrogant cat too much liberty around the house.
5. He’s wild eyed and a little dangerous to be around, but the man knows how to tell a story.
Self Distribution and What it Looks Like
You’ve got your movie done, now what? You could go out to all the distributors and see if they have any interest in your film or you could do it yourself but where do you start? How do you reach places like Netflix, itunes, hulu, amazon prime and so forth? Back at the time there wasn’t a lot of information on how to make that happen so Distribber seemed like the best and maybe only option to make it happen.
