You’ve gone through hell to complete your film. Kudos to you! Whether it’s a short or a feature film, now is the time to think about promotion.
The traditional route would involve taking your film on the festival circuit. You may be discouraged to find that your film is one among thousands, now that it seems like everyone with a digital camera is making movies. Your film may have an important message that can change the world, but unless you know how to market it, no one will see your film. Even Star Wars would have been a sleeper without effective promotion.
When I started out as a filmmaker, I quickly realized that I would need to develop ancillary skills, so I formed my media company iTiger Media and started contracting myself out. Soon I was building websites and marketing films for major studios. I learned a lot about what it takes to get your film out there and I want to share some techniques that will help you.
Nothing is worse than bringing your film to life only to see it go nowhere as no one sees it. Not only should your film garner thousands of views, but it should be the springboard that launches your filmmaking career. Because filmmaking is expensive and time consuming, it’s important to get it right! Your goal should be to find an audience while attracting the attention of major Hollywood players! These are some of the powerful techniques I have developed to get your film seen! For more techniques subscribe to my YouTube Channel www.ronkarmstrong.com.
Bonus Tip: Put your film’s URL and tagline in your email signature. You send thousands of emails each year and each one is an advertising opportunity. Imagine that every person who receives and email from you also clicks the URL and learns about your film?
These are just some of my powerful techniques to promote your film. As a master marketer, I have studied and tested all types of techniques, from NLP selling skills to subliminal/hypnotic techniques. These techniques all work, but it’s important to find the right technique for your film. Lack of attention to marketing during the writing process cripples many filmmakers. Build your audience during the film’s inception to ensure a successful launch. Good luck!
