    Default Self-Distribution Success Stories

    Hello All

    Would love to hear some success stories from fellow filmmakers on self-distribution, including those who have used platforms like Distribber, Quiver as well as placing sales links up themselves and going the Amazon/CreateSpace route.

    With all the books and courses available on DIY distribution there must be tons of filmmakers out there who have made
    small films on microbudgets and made a profit but I've spoken to hundreds of filmmakers in my travels to film markets
    and film festivals and I've yet to find one that has actually turned a decent profit on a microbudget [under 20K] feature.

    Hey Mcurran,

    Its tough with the spectrum of 20K and under, most of our clients have spent well above 150K on their films.

    A title under 20K (unless a documentary) should not have any plans to make its money back. I am not being negative, its very possible and there are some blogs/podcasts out there that claim it is, but its HARD.

    Distribber has released about 700 titles that past year, and I'll get you a list of our Netflix releases (off the top of my head our latest was Funko last week https://www.netflix.com/title/80244272) but I'll post more.

    So far, 80% of our filmmakers consider getting a licensing deal from Netflix a success so maybe that list will be helpful. :)
