To get viewers and sales is a lot harder than actually making the films.
Today our local movie theater showed two of my films and it had been advertised with all the usual flyers, mentioned on the home page, I had printed and distributed 250 flyers in mail boxes two days before, and I shared it on FB a couple of hours before show time. Seven people came.
It is about average for our theater, but to be honest, I was expecting a little bit more. But on the other hand, some award winning films haven’t got even that many.
Two weeks from now it’s going to be shown at an other theater and I think it’s going to yield better results.
It’s going to take about a thousand years before my films have paid off. I’m an incurable optimist.
