Article submissions

We're on the hunt for a few good articles.

The deets

We're looking for relatively short articles, quick reads with something to say.  While we're pretty open, the ideal article is probably about 5-7 paragraphs.  It should be pretty easy to knock that out, but don't feel constrained if you have more to say than that.

Gave an interview once?  Turn that into a short article.  Written a book?  Feel free to modify an exceprt from there.

Writing an article is a great way to promote yourself or your projects.


Primarily, the articles should be relevant to filmmakers.  Useful tips or a point-of-view on a particular topic are perfect.  Share your experiences.

There are so many topics to choose from!  Here are a few quick ideas to get the juices flowing.

  • What makes a good script
  • How to find scripts
  • Option agreements
  • Fund raising
  • Do you need a business plan?
  • Business structuring
  • Music contracts
  • Dealing with the unions
  • Finding good help
  • Pifalls in production
  • How to successfully market with low / no budget
  • The relevance of film festivals
  • Film festival strategies & tips
  • Distribution strategies / state of the industry
  • Point-of-view on the future of indie film
  • Who's making money on indie films?
  • Other ideas? We'd love to hear them.
