Why? Because if you want to turn your dream into a career you're going to need smart and useful information coming to you by people who are invested in your advancement. Marc Schiller at Bond Influence sees a future where more and more indie filmmakers have taken up DIY marketing and distribution and found success.

Let's define success for a second. Lets say you make a short film for $5k. You find a way to make 1 or 2 more. You have no way to make money on short films BUT, 3 short films with behind the scenes footage that shows a compelling drama about the struggle of filmmaking might certainly make the rounds. If the narratives are entertaining and the packaging is attractive, you've got a triple threat that would go NO WHERE unless you took the risk to place it in the market while building up a grassroots fan base.

By the time your ready to produce or direct your feature, you might actually have the money to pursue the next level of marketing and afford companies like Bond to assist. But crossing the gap is our job and blogs like BOND 360, Joke and Biaggio, Coppy Blogger, Filmonomics and those featured by Raindance and Tribeca film festivals allows us to course-correct effectively and stay in the game.
