Credits: 3

One of the primary concerns facing independent filmmakers upon completion of their projects poses the following questions: Now that my film is in the can what do I do? Where do I go? In this course, students will gain insights and realistic solutions to the behind-the-scenes process of getting your independent film into the market place, and the constantly changing landscape of film marketing and distribution. Navigating the seemingly burdensome terrain of film distribution may seem like such a daunting task that makers often neglect to consider this part of the production process until its too late. This course will examine a myriad of ideas and options that are available to properly promote, market and finally distribute independent films and videos to the right venues, including web-based delivery systems, allowing work to be exposed to the largest audiences possible, and maybe even eventually providing an income for the artists' efforts. Using real films, both released and unreleased, students are encouraged (but not required) to provide examples of their own work as case studies in the distribution process.

This section is open to Master of Science and graduate certificate Media Management students only. All other graduate students may request access three weeks before the start of the course by emailing mediastudiesadvising@newschool.edu"
