Last week I wrote 8 tips for independent filmmakers to use the web to promote their work and earn money via the ad-revenue-sharing online video sites. The ideas came from some of the discussions I had with filmmakers when I spoke at the Independent Feature Project event in NYC.
Here’s a great case study. Austin Filmmaker John McLean has a movie called Z (click to see film’s website). Here are some “PSAs” he created (and uploaded to Revver.com) to promote his work. John writes:
You inspired me to pimp for my latest low-budget picture–a feature-length Zombie musical, with fully 14 song & dance numbers–in a completely different way than usual.
If I can just inspire one promising filmmaker to pimp online, I can sleep well at night. Check out the promos:
Jenna Fischer from NBC’s “The Office” is a big Zombie fan (according to her interview on Leno last week). Might want to get her as a spokesperson, John.
