He'll also review red flag clauses that should make you consider letting a deal go and talk about options you can use to distribute your film to cable, TV, broadcast, VOD and even theatrical buyers worldwide if you don't cut a great deal with the right distribution company. Independent film producers routinely spend years producing their projects, working with writers, actors, editors and other skilled professionals to produce projects funded by equity investors and banks. Mistakes they make at Sundance can translate into a film that never repays the investment of time and money poured into it.
