INDUSTRY INSIGHTS: How to Estimate Sales for Your Film

 

One of the biggest questions I get asked all the time is "how do I estimate sales projections for my film?". 

The bottom line is there's no way to estimate sales for a film you haven't made yet with 100% certainty. But what you CAN do, is go off projections that other films are making in the market. For example, according to the Sales Projections I prepared for the Film Specific site, it shows the high and low range of what low budget films with 'no name' cast and 'name' cast are making in the marketplace.  How do I gather this information? I know from my many years as a sales agent what is realistic in each territory, and keep on top of the ebbs and flows from market to market (like Cannes and AFM). 

A while back I did a Virtual Seminar that explains all this, and I'm opening it up for free access this week for you take a listen to. With AFM coming up quickly, this is info you'll want to have in your back pocket.
