One of my biggest frustrations being a UK Horror filmmaker is that too often our genre struggles to monetise itself fairly. With the distribution model all but broken for independent film it's absolutely critical we begin to safeguard the genre we love and work in.
The main thing that my debut film Young, High and Dead taught me was that in order to sell any viable product you need a water tight business plan. Film is business no matter how much you try and leverage the artistic and creative side to it. No sales = no work.
I know so many talented fellow filmmakers who all hustle and work as hard as me but in order for all of us to survive we need to start disrupting the industry. So how do we do it?
